Hark the notes of angels singing
(Thomas Kelly/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

Hark the notes of angels singing.

"Worthy is the Lamb." (Revelation 5,12)

1. Hark the notes of angels singing –
  "Glory, glory to the Lamb!"
All in heav'n their tribute bringing,
  raising high the Saviour's name.

2. Ye for whom his life was given,
  sacred themes to you belong:
come assist the choir of heaven;
  join the everlasting song.

3. Saints and angels thus united,
  songs imperfect still must raise;
though despised on earth, and slighted,
  Jesus is above all praise.

4. See th' angelic hosts have crowned him,
  Jesus fills the throne on high:
countless myriads, hov'ring round him,
  with his praises rend the sky.

5. Filled with holy emulation,
  let us vie with those above:
sweet the theme – a free salvation!
  Fruit of everlasting love.

6. Endless life in him possessing,
  let us praise his precious name:
glory, honour, power and blessing,
  be for ever to the Lamb.

Thomas Kelly, Hymns on various passages of Scripture, ca. 1853, Hymn 41.
