I came across this anonymous text a little over a year ago and was struck by the line (which is now the title) “songs which angels cannot sing.” Unlike the fallen angels, sinful man has been given an unbelievable gospel: God humbled Himself, moved into our neighborhood, and provided the way of salvation for the restoration of our souls through His life, death, and resurrection. That’s our anthem. That’s why we sing.
P.S. be sure to click “listen” to hear the song and “learn” to check out the chord chart. If you want to download either, just right-click and hit “save link as…”
Songs Which Angels Cannot Sing listen | learn
Hark, what music fills the sky!
“Glory be to God on high,”
Angels sing, and hosts reply.
To the sons of men is given
God’s dear Son, best gift of heaven,
Pledge of grace and sin forgiven.
So we praise the One who gave
To the manger and the grave,
All to ransom, all to save.
Christ we own as Lord and King,
And as tribute meet we bring
Songs which angels cannot sing.
