Hark! the herald angels sing

“Glory to the new-born King,

Peace on earth and mercy mild;

God and sinners reconciled.”

Joyful all ye nations rise,

Join the triumph of the skies,

With th’angelic host proclaim,

“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

 

Christ by highest heav’n adored,

Christ the everlasting Lord,

Late in time behold him come,

Offspring of a Virgin’s womb.

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;

Hail th’incarnate Deity!

Pleased as man with man t’appear,

Jesus our Immanuel here.

 

Mild he lays his glory by,

Born that man no more may die;

Born to raise the sons of earth,

Born to give them second birth.

Hail the heav’n born Prince of peace!

Hail the Sun of righteousness!

Light and life to all he brings,

Ris’n with healing in his wings.
