Hark the angels’ song,
Hark the angels’ song,
Ringing thro’ the portals on high;
Look, each star so bright,
Trembles in delight,
As they hear the heav’nly cry.

Refrain


Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest!

Good news of peace unto all I bring,
Yonder is born a king,
Glory to God in the highest!
Glory to God in the highest!

Glory to God, glory to God,
Glory to God on high!

Hark the angels’ song,
Hark the angels’ song,
Song that never mortals have heard—
Rise, O sleeping earth,
Hail thy Savior’s birth,
Bow in praise before the Lord.

Refrain

Hark the angels’ song,
Hark the angels’ song,
Sweeter words no mortal could frame;
Song in Heaven taught,
All with rapture fraught,
Sounding forth the glorious praise.

Refrain
