music cover - Hark! Upon the Morning 250

Hark! upon the morning breezes,
In the darkness, ere the waking,
Music sweet the senses pleases
Soft, upon the stillness breaking;
“Glory, Glory” this the singing,
Welcome to Immanuel bringing.

Shepherds at their watch beholding
Angels clad in glistening whiteness,
Heard the wondrous news unfolding
‘Mid that dazzling scene of brightness:
“Glory, Glory!” peace, and kindness,
Light is breaking on our blindness.


Glorious morn! The sun uprising
Shone upon a world rejoicing;
God is with us, truth surprising!
List to song the message voicing:
“Glory, Glory!” ages told it,
Heavenly voices how unfold it.

God adored, our nature wearing!
Ah, such condescending meekness!
Stooping to a world despairing
Full of pity for our weakness;
“Glory, Glory!” praises swelling,
God hath made with man His dwelling.
– translated by John Brownlie
