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 th’ angelic host proclaim,Christ is born in bethlehem.Hark! the herald angels sing,Glory to the newborn king!Christ, by highest heav’n adored:Christ, the everlasting lord;Late in time behold him come,Offspring of the favored one.Veil’d in flesh, the godhead see;Hail, th’incarnate deity:Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,Jesus, our emmanuel!Hark! the herald angels sing,Glory to the newborn king!Hail! the heav’n-born prince of peace!Hail! the son of righteousness!Light and life to all he brings,Risen with healing in his wingsMild he lays his glory by,Born that man no more may die:Born to raise the sone of earth,Born to give them second birth.Hark! the herald angels sing,Glory to the newborn king!
