2153. Hark! The Full-Voiced Choir Is Singing

1. Hark! the full-voiced choir is singing,
As the midnight darkness flies;
Heavenly angels now are bringing
Peaceful tidings from the skies.

Hail, O Jesus! Hail, O Jesus!
Sun of righteousness, arise!
Sun of righteousness, arise!

2. Yes, behold the day of glory,
Dawn at length for all the earth;
List, the cherubs tell the story—
This the day of Jesus’ birth. [Refrain]

3. Lo, He comes! His throne the manger,
Shepherds, seek His shrine the stall;
Ox and ass behold the stranger,
God, who made and governs all! [Refrain]

4. Mortals, raise your loudest voices,
Jesus lifts on high your horn;
Earth redeemed today rejoices,
For today her Lord is born! [Refrain]
