83. Hark! What Mean Those Holy Voices

1 Hark! what mean those holy voices
Sweetly sounding thro' the skies?
Lo, th'angelic host rejoices,
Heav'nly hallelujahs rise.

2 Listen to the wondrous story
Which they chant in hymns of joy,
Glory in the highest, glory!
Glory be to God Most High!

3 Peace on earth, good will from heaven,
Reaching far as man is found;
Souls redeemed and sins forgiven!
Loud our golden harps shall sound.

4 Christ is born, the great Anointed!
Heav'n and earth, His praises sing!
Oh, receive whom God appointed
For your Prophet, Priest and King.

5 Hasten, mortals, to adore Him,
Learn His name and taste His joy,
Till in heaven ye sing before Him,
"Glory be to God most high!"

6 Let us learn the wondrous story
Of our great Redeemer’s birth;
Spread the brightness of His glory,
Till it cover all the earth.

Amen.
