1 Hark, the angel choirs proclaim
Joyfully the Savior’s name;
At His birth their armies cry:
Glory be to God on high!

God the Son, made flesh today,
Takes the guilt of man away;
Pardoned sinners, shout for joy.

2 As the glory shines around,
Fears the shepherd throng confound,
Till the angel’s cheering voice
Bids their timid hearts rejoice. [Refrain]

3 Hasting with obedient mind,
Him in swathing bands they find;
Him, by whom the worlds were made
In a lowly manger laid. [Refrain]

4 Glory be to God above,
Fountain of eternal love,
To the Father and the Son,
And the Spirit, Three in one. [Refrain]
