201. 8s. & 7s. M. Cawood. Song of the Angels of Bethlehem.
1 Hark! what mean those holy voices,
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
Lo! th' angelic host rejoices;
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.
2 Listen to the wondrous story
Which they chant in hymns of joy:
|Glory in the highest, glory!
Glory be to God most high!
3 |Peace on earth, good-will from heaven,
Reaching far as man is found:
Souls redeemed and sins forgiven: --
Loud our golden harps shall sound.
4 |Christ is born, the great Anointed;
Heaven and earth his praises sing!
O, receive whom God appointed,
For your Prophet, Priest and King.|
5 Let us learn the wondrous story
Of our great Redeemer's birth;
Spread the brightness of his glory,
Till it cover all the earth.
