9693. Caroling, Caroling All Thro' The Night

1 Caroling, caroling, all thro’ the night,
Music God’s love did inspire;
Angels from Glory are winging their flight,
Bright robed and golden that choir!

Hark, the herald angels,
In the heavenly choir,
Christmas glory chanting,
Striking harp and lyre!
Striking harp and lyre!

2 Glory, O glory, thus rang the glad strain,
Glory to God with sweet peace!
Mortals and sinners, Christ cometh to reign,
Sorrow and sighing shall cease. [Refrain]

3 Singing, O singing, blest angels so fair,
Melodies sweet and sublime!
Soothing the hearts that are weary with care,
Wafting glad tidings divine. [Refrain]

4 Carol, then carol, for holy the joy,
Flowing from Jesus the King;
Voices, ten thousand, come, glad notes employ,
Gloria, Gloria sing! [Refrain]
