HARK THE HERALD ANGELS SING

Charles Wesley, Felix Mendelssohn

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
Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”

 

Christ by highest heaven adored, Christ, the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold He’ll come, Offspring of a Virgin’s womb

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, hail the incarnate deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”

 

Hail, the heaven born Prince of Peace! Hail, the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings, Risen with 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!”
