1 Hark, the hosts of heav’n are singing
Praises to their new-born Lord,
Strains of sweetest music flinging,
Not a note or word unheard.
2 On this night, all nights excelling,
God’s high praises sounded forth,
As their lowly flocks they tended,
Came new tidings from the skies.
3 All the hosts of heaven are chanting
Songs with power to stir and thrill,
And the universe is panting
Joy’s deep longings to fulfill.
4 On this day then through creation
Let the glorious hymn ring out;
Let men hail the great salvation,
“God with us,” with song and shout.
