Lyrics

Hark! the notes of angels singing,
Glory, glory to the Lamb!
All in Heaven their tribute bringing,
Raising high the Savior’s name.

Ye for whom His life was given,
Sacred themes to you belong:
Come, assist the choir of Heaven,
Join the everlasting song.

See! the angelic hosts have crowned Him,
Jesus fills the throne on high;
Countless myriads, hovering round Him,
With His praises rend the sky.

Filled with holy emulation,
Let us vie with those above:
Sweet the theme, a free salvation,
Fruit of everlasting love.

Endless life in Him possessing,
Let us praise His precious name;
Glory, honor, power and blessing
Be forever to the Lamb.
