Representative Text

1 Hark! I hear ten thousand voices sing,
Glory be to God on high!
While the choirs of angels hail their King,
“Glory!” let the earth reply.

Glory in the highest, glory in the highest,
Sound his matchless praise from shore to shore;
Glory in the highest, glory in the highest,
Glory, glory evermore!

2 Now o’er all the world his banner waves,
Let the saints glad voices raise;
Hail the promised Christ who Israel saves,
Swell the notes of holy praise. [Refrain]

3 Sound the proclamation loud and grand,
Spread the tidings far and near,
Tell the joyful news to ev’ry land,
Let the waiting nations hear. [Refrain]

4 Haste, proclaim the year of jubilee,
Shout aloud the glad refrain,
“Lo, thy King returneth unto thee,
Christ o’er all the world shall reign.” [Refrain]
