1. Hark! what heavenly sounds are floating
Through the midnight air;
Angel voices sweetly singing
Songs so wondrous fair.

2. "Come and worship" seems the burthen
Of their festal lay,
"In the little city yonder,
Christ is born today."

3. See around the lowly cradle
Wise men from afar
Bow in deepest adoration
To the Holy Star.

4. Shouts of praise and songs celestial
Mount up to the skies,
Shadows of terrestrial darkness
From creation rise.

5. Lo! The long expected Jesus
Comes to set us free,
Lift your voices, swell the anthem
To the one in Three.

Sheet Music from Charles L. Hutchins, Carols Old and Carols New (Boston: Parish Choir, 1916), Carol #144
