A simple, carol-like anthem for unaccompanied choir. A.H. Palmer’s text is full of joy, awe, and reverence – perfect for Christmas Eve or a Lessons and Carols service!

Wake, O my soul, and hail the morn,
For unto us a Savior’s born;
See, how the angels wing their way,
To usher in the glorious day!

Hark! What sweet music, what a song,
Sounds from the bright, celestial throng!
Sweet song, whose melting sounds impart
Joy to each raptured, listening heart.

Come, join the angels in the sky,
All glory to God, who reigns on high;
Let peace and love on earth abound,
While time revolves and years roll round.

– A.H. Palmer, 1883
