Hark! the Herald Host is singing
Hark! The herald host is singing,
Thro' the silent holy night,
Tidings of great joy they're bringing,
From yon starry azure height.
And each heart is filled with gladness,
At the message which they bring;
"Christ is born, forget all sadness,
Trust in Him, your Saviour King!"
And behold the stars bright glowing,
Shed o'er earth their radiant light,
While from Angels' lips are flowing
Anthems thro' the holy night.
Bright each window now is glowing,
Lighted by the Christmas tree;
And each cheek with joy is glowing,
And each heart is filled with glee.
Soft the messengers from heaven
Wing their flight from home to home;
Bearing lessons God hath given
Unto all the earth that roam.
"Welcome, welcome Christmas evening
Bringing peace and love to earth!"
Show your gratitude, rejoicing,
Christians in your Saviour's birth!
