Hark! what mean those holy voices,
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
Lo! the angelic host rejoices;
Heavenly 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, goodwill from heaven
Reaching far as man is found;
Life proclaimed, and sin forgiven;
Hear the joyful news resound!
Christ is born, the great Anointed;
Heaven and earth His praises sing!
O, receive whom God appointed,
For your Prophet, Priest and King.
