A HYMN FOR TODAY – Song of Angels

A HYMN FOR TODAY – Song of Angels

In the morning of creation,

When no human voice was heard,

Angels sang the adoration

Of the Father and the Word.

Shouting in that ancient quiet,

With the morning stars, they sang;

Suns and planets heard them cry it,

And the silent heavens rang,

And the silent heavens rang.

Mantled in eternal glory

On a still Judean night

Angels sang another story

Of forgiveness and delight.

They, the messengers of heaven

Came with gladness to the earth,

Welcoming what God had given,

Praising our Messiah’s birth,

Praising our Messiah’s birth.

Now the angels’ exultation

Echoes out again, again,

For they sing at each salvation

Of the sinner from his sin.

With the saints they join together,

Crying with united voice,

“Blessed be the Lord forever!

All who hear his name, rejoice!

All who hear his name, rejoice!”
