1. Hark! What mean those holy voices
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
Lo, the Angelic host rejoices;
Heav'nly Alleluias rise

Chorus
Listen to the wondrous story
Which they chant in hymns and joy,
Glory in the highest, glory,
Glory be to God most high.

2. With their blessed alleluias
Hear what wondrous things they tell
How lost man has now a Saviour,
Born to conquer death and hell. Listen to, &c.

3. Born Thy people to deliver,
Jesu, from the death of sin;
Born to make us Thine forever;
Still abide our souls within! Listen to, &c.

4. Son of God, most holy Jesu,
Endless glory be to Thee,
To the Father and the Spirit,
Now and through eternity. Listen to, &c.
