Text

Hark! what mean those holy voices,
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
Lo! Th'angelic host rejoices
Heav'nly hallelujahs rise.

Listen to the wondrous story,
Let us sing in hymns of joy;
"Glory in the highest, glory;
Glory be to God most high!"

Peace on earth, good will from Heaven,
Reaching far as man is found;
Souls redeem'd, and sins forgiven;
Loud our golden harps shall sound.

Listen to the wondrous story,
Let us sing in hymns of joy;
"Glory in the highest, glory;
Glory be to God most high!"
