Men
Hark! what mean those holy voices?
Sweetly sounding through the skies?
All
Lo! the angelic host rejoices, --
Heavenly hallelujahs rise.
Angels

Women Men
Hallelujah! Hark! what mean those holy voices,
Hallelujah! Sweetly sounding through the skies?

All
Listen to the wondrous story
Which they chant in hymns of joy.
"Glory in the highest, glory!
Glory be to God most high!
Glory in the highest, glory,
Glory be to God most high!

Women Men
Glory! Glory, glory in the highest
glory be to God most high! glory!

All
"Peace on earth, good will from heaven,"
Reaching far as man is found:
Souls redeemed and sins forgiven,
Loud our golden harps shall sound.

Women Men
Hallelujah! Souls redeemed and sins forgiven,
Hallelujah! Loud our golden harps shall sound.

All
Christ is born, the great Anointed!
Heav'n and earth His praises sing!
O receive whom God appointed,
For your Prophet, Priest and King!
O receive whom God appointed
For your Prophet, Priest, and King!
Crib

Women Men
Glory! Glory, glory in the highest
glory be to God most high! glory!

All
O receive whom God appointed
For your Prophet, Priest, and King!
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
