I Hark ! wdiat mean those holy voices
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
Lo ! th' angelic host rejoices,
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.
Listen to the wondrous story
Which they chant in hymns of joy :
Glorv in the highest, glorv !
(ilury be to God most high !
2 Peace on earth, good-will from heaven,
Reaching far as man is found :
Souls redeem'd and sins forgiven,
l.oud our golden harps shall sound.
Chri-t is born, the great Anointed,
Heaven and earth his praises sing:
O! receive whom God appointed
For your Prophet, Prie-st and King.
3 Ila-t' n, mortals, to adore him,
Learn his name and taste his joy:
Till in heaven ye sing before him,
Glorv be to God must high !
Let Us learn the wondrous story
(>f our great Redeemer's birth :
Spread the brightness of his glory
Till it cover all the earth.
L05 Luke ii. 8-14. CM.
[ Tune Helier, page 57.]
I While shepherds watch'd their flocks by
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.
" Fear not," said he, ( for mighty dread
Had sei/'d their troubled mind,)
"(.lad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.
2 "To you, in David's town, this day,
Is born of David's lin,-,
The Saviour, who is Christ the Lord ;
And this shall be the si"n :
"The heavenly babe you there shall find
To human view display'd,
All meanly wrapp'd in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid."
