HARK! THE SKIES WITH MUSIC SOUND
Words:Joseph Proud (1745-1826).
Music:Anonymous, in Hosanna (New York: New Church Press, 1920)
1. Hark! the skies with music sound,
Heav’nly glory beams around;
Christ is born! the angels sing
Glory to the newborn King.
2. Peace is come, goodwill appears;
Sinners wipe away your tears;
Christ for you in flesh today
Humbly in the manger lay.
3. Shepherds, tending flocks by night,
Heard the song, and saw the light;
Took their reeds, and softest strains
Echoed through the happy plains.
4. Mortals, hail the glorious King!
Richest incense cheerful bring;
Praise and love Immanuel’s Name,
And His boundless grace proclaim.
5. Glory, praise, and blessing be,
Lord, our Savior, unto Thee;
Thee let heaven and earth adore,
God o’er all forevermore.
