Representative Text

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.

Refrain:
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]
