All this night bright angels sing,|
Never was such caroling,
Hark! a voice which loudly cries,
�Mortals, mortals, wake and rise.�
Lo! to gladness turns your sadness:
From the earth is ris�n a Son,
Shines all night tho� day be done.�
Wake, O earth, wake ev�ry thing,
Wake and hear the joy I bring:
Wake and joy; for all this night,
Heav�n and ev�ry twinkling light,
All amazing, still stand gazing,
Angels, pow�rs and all that be,
Wake, and joy this Son to see.
Hail! O Son, O bless�d Light,
Sent into this world by night;
Let Thy rays and heav�nly pow�rs,
Shine in these dark souls of ours.
For most duly, Thou art truly
God and Man, we do confess:
Hail, O Sun of Righteousness!
