Lyrics:John Cawood
Music:From Gotha Cantional

This hymn has a unique tune.


Hark! What mean those holy voices

Sweetly sounding in the skies?

Lo! th' angelic host rejoices,

Loudest hallelujahs rise.


Listen to the wondrous story

Which they chant 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 redeemed and sins forgiven,

Loud our golden harps shall sound.


"Christ is born! The great Anointed!

Heaven and earth His glory sing;

Oh, receive whom God appointed

For your Prophet, Priest, and King!


"Hasten, mortals, to adore Him

Learn His name and taste His joy,

Till one day ye sing before Him

Glory be to God most high! "


Let us learn the wondrous story

Of our great Redeemer's birth;

Spread the brightness of His glory,

Till it cover all the earth.
