296. The Angel Choir

1 I seem to hear an angel choir
Down from their shining home;
And in my heart their notes inspire
Sweet anthems from the throne.

Refrain:
Hark! o’er the vale sweet melodies
That echo in my soul;
Our great Redeemer’s holy praise
As mighty thunders roll.

2 Upon the mount of holiness,
We live in heaven’s view;
And o’er the shaded valley come
Their songs forever new. [Refrain]

3 Above, below, one family,
A thousand chords of love;
Now thrill my soul with melodies,
They chant in praise above. [Refrain]

4 I catch the pure celestial strain
That heaven wafts to me;
And then my happy spirit sings,
“Oh, glory, I am free!” [Refrain]

5 We echo back the sounds that float
Through Eden’s balmy air;
And heaven shouts to hear on earth
The songs they’re singing there. [Refrain]
