Hark the angels' song

Representative Text

1 Hark the angels' song,
Hark the angels' song.
Ringing thro' the portals on high;
Look, each star so bright
Trembles in delight
As they hear that heav'nly cry.

Chorus:
"Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest!"
Good news of peace unto all I bring,
Yonder is born a King.
"Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest!"
Glory to God, glory to God, glory to God on high!

2 Hark the angels' song,
Hark the angel's song,
Song that never mortals have heard--
Rise, O sleeping earth,
Hail thy Saviour's birth,
Bow in praise before the Lord. [Chorus]

3 Hark the angels' song,
Hark the angel's song,
Sweeter words no mortal could frame;
Song in heaven taught,
All with rapture fraught,
Sounding forth the glorious praise. [Chorus]
