Awake ye drowsy mortals all!
Hear what the Angels say,
Hear what the Angels say,
And listen to the heavn'ly call,
'A Saviour born today,
A Saviour born today,
A Saviour born today,
A Saviour born today.'

Glory to God in highest strains,
In highest strains be paid,
In highest strains be paid!
His glory by our lips proclaimed,
And by our lives display'd,
And by our lives display'd,
And by our lives display'd,
And by our lives display'd!

Hark, What Seraphic tunes arise,
And from the Heav'n resound!
As from the Heave's resound!
While our glad voices rend the skies
He is with glory crownd'd
He is with glory crownd'd
He is with glory crownd'd
He is with glory crownd'd
