37. Hark! the sound of angel voices

1 Hark! the sound of angel-voices
Over Bethlehem starlit plain;
Hark! the heavenly host rejoices,
Jesus comes to earth to reign.
See celestial radiance beaming,
Lighting up the midnight sky;
‘Tis the promised daystar gleaming,
‘Tis the day-spring from on high,
‘Tis the day-spring from on high.

2 Westward, all along the ages,
Trace its pathway clear and bright;
Star of hope to eastern sages,
Radiant now with Gospel light.
Angels from the realms of glory,
Peace on earth delight to sing,
Christian, tell the wondrous story,
Go, proclaim the Saviour King!
Go, proclaim the Saviour King!
