Awake, arise, and hail the glorious morn,
Hark, how the angels sing to you a Saviour's born.
Now let our hearts in concert move,
And every heart be tun'd to love.
The long expected morn
Is dawned upon the earth,
The Saviour, Christ, is born,
And angels sing his birth.
We'll join the bright seraphic throng—
The bright seraphic throng,
Their joys we'll share, and swell their song.
Now sing of grace divine,
Sing of good will to men ;
No wisdom, Lord, but thine,
Could form the gracious plan;
Could find a way to save the lost,
Thyself not ceasing to be just.
Glory to God on high, for our Immanuel's birth,
To mortal man good will, and peace and joy on earth;
With angels now we will repeat,
Their songs we'll now and ever meet.
