1 Hark! the carols from the sky,
Glory be to God on high,
Prince of heaven, born on earth!
Angels sing to hail His birth.
Glory be to God on high!
Earth’s glad voices make reply.
As the centuries roll along,
Still that holy, holy song
Angels sing on high,
Angels sing on high.
2 Blest fulfillment of the word!
God His waiting people heard;
Then the Sun of glory shone,
Christ came down to save His own. [Refrain]
3 Not as comes the conq’ror down,
Not with pomp of earthly crown,
But a lovely little child,
Gentle, holy, meek and mild. [Refrain]
4 Centuries now have rolled away
Since that sacred Christmas day,
But the carols ringing clear
Through the ages still we hear. [Refrain]Source: Fair as the Morning. Hymns and Tunes for Praise in the Sunday-School #130
