1 Hark! what sounds are sweetly stealing
Soft thro’ Bethle’m’s midnight air?
Louder yet, and louder pealing,
Angel accents sure are there.
2 See! a light from Heaven is streaming,
Night and darkness quit the plain;
See! an angel brightly beaming,
Followed by a radiant train.
3 “Fear not, shepherds! glad my story,
Tidings of the greatest joy:
Christ is born, the Lord of Glory!
I proclaim a Saviour nigh.”
4 Thus the angel, then ascending,
Seeks again the realms of light;
Now the chorus faintly ending,
All is silence, all is night.Source: Elmhurst Hymnal: and orders of worship for the Sunday school, young people's meetings and church services #77
