Hark! the Herald Angels Sing


(Melody by Felix Mendelssohn, Lyrics by Charles Wesley)

Hark the herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn king,
Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled”
Joyful all ye nations rise, Join the triumph of the skies
With angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem” (repeat)

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 the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus, our Immanuel (repeat)

Hail the Heaven born Prince of Peace; Hail the Sun of Righteousness
Light and life to all He brings, Ris’n healing in His wings
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
Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”
