Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.24

First Line: Hark ! what mean those holy voices

Hark ! what mean those holy voices
Sweetly sounding in the skies ?
Lo ! th' angelic host rejoices,
Loudest hallelujahs rise.

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

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

4 Christ is born ! the great Anointed !
Heaven and earth His glory sing;
Oh receive whom God appointed
For your Prophet,Priest, and King!

5 Hasten, mortals, to adore Him,
Learn His name and taste His joy,
Till in heaven ye sing before Him
Glory be to God most high !

6 Let us learn the wondrous story
Of our great Redeemer's birth;
Spread the brightness of His glory,
Till it cover all the earth.
