1 Hark! the mighty tones sublime,
Trumpet tongues of olden time—
Breathing on the silent air,
Shouting glory everywhere!
Hark! again their joyful sound
Rings afar, the earth around;
While a vast, adoring throng,
Catch the strain and join the song.
Unto us a child is given;
Open now the gates of heaven;
Eden lost, to man restored,
Through the birth of Christ the Lord.
2 Mourning captive, cease thy tears;
Lo! the promised day appears,
Through the misty vail of night,
Bursting in a flood of light;
Oh, what wondrous things are done
By the Father, through the Son!
Oh, the smile of pard'ning grace,
Beaming in the Saviour's face! [Refrain]
3 Now with healing in her wings,
Hark! a white robed angel sings:—
"Mortals from the realms above,
I have borne my harp of love;
Hallelujah! sing with me;
Hail our greatest jubilee!
Sing, in purest, sweetest lays,
On this holy day of days." [Refrain]
