HARK! what mean those heavenly voices,

Sweetly sounding through the skies?

Lo! the angelic host rejoices:

Heavenly Hallelujahs rise.

Hark! the heralds of salvation!

Joyful news the angels bring;

God, himself in flesh hath entered,

Jesus is the new-born King!

Hear him tell the wondrous story,

Hear them chant in hymns of joy,

"Glory in the highest-glory!

Glory be to God most high!

Peace on earth-good will from heaven,

Reaching far as man is found,

Souls redeemed, and sins forgiven,"

Loud our golden harps shall sound.

Christ is born, the great anointed;

Heaven and earth his praises sing!

Oh receive whom God appointed,

For your Prophet, Priest, and King.

Haste, ye mortals, to adore him;

Learn his name and taste his joy;

Till in heaven ye sing before him,

Glory be to God most high!
