1 Hark, hark again, angelic voices blending,
Tell of a night in Juda’s land afar,
When from His throne, at God’s command descending,
They sang of One, the bright and morning star.
Glory to God, forever more be glory,
Peace on earth, goodwill to men below;
Still we repeat the angels’ blessed story,
Heard in the land of Judah long ago.
2 While in the fields the shepherds watch were keeping,
Guarding their flocks beneath the arch above,
Joy filled their hearts, and earth from dreamy sleeping
Waked with the song of God’s eternal love. [Refrain]
3 Still we proclaim in joyful exultation,
Welcome to Him whose arm salvation brings;
Lift up your hearts in holy adoration;
He is the Lord, and He the King of kings. [Refrain]
