Sacred Songs and Solos Lyrics
Hymn No.28

First Line: Rolling downward through the midnight

Rolling downward through the midnight,
Comes a glorious burst of heavenly song;
Tis a chorus full of sweetness
And the singers are an angel throng.

Glory ! glory the highest
On the earth good will and peace to men
Down the ages . . .send the echo ;
Let the glad earth shout again!

2 Wondering shepherds see the glory,
Hear the word the shining ones declare;
At the manger fall in worship,
While the music fills the quivering air.

3 Christ the Saviour,God's Anointed,
Comes to earth our fearful debt to pay
Man of Sorrows,and rejected,
Lamb of God, that takes our sin away.
