Chorus of the angels.
Luke 2:14.

W. T. Moore.

Hark! what joyful notes are swelling

On the quiet midnight air!

’Tis the voice of angels telling,

Jesus comes our sins to bear!

Now the music, in its gladness,

Breaks and swells, and glides along!

Now, earth, waking from her sadness,

Joins the chorus of the song!

Glory in the highest heaven!

Peace on earth, good-will to man!

Let all praise to God be given,

For Redemption’s glorious plan!

2 See all darkness disappearing,

As the star begins to rise!

Sin and death stand trembling, fearing,

As the light falls on their eyes:

Now, again, the earth rejoices,

Satan’s powerful kingdom shakes,

As, from all the heavenly voices,

Louder still the chorus breaks!

Glory in the highest heaven! etc.

3 Rise and shine, Star of Salvation!

Spread thy beams o’er all the earth,

Till each distant land and nation

Owns and speaks thy matchless worth!

84

Till all tongues, thy praises singing,

Shall thy mighty wonders tell,

Till all heaven with joy is ringing,

As our hearts the chorus swell:

Glory in the highest heaven! etc.

4 When our days on earth are ended,

And we rise to worlds above,

Then our songs shall all be blended

In one song of pardoning love!

Then we’ll tell the wondrous story,

And our blesséd Lord adore;

In our home of bliss and glory

We shall sing for evermore!

Glory in the highest heaven!

Sound aloud the joyful strain!

Glory to the Lamb be given,

Who for sinners once was slain!
