1. 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 the angelic host proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Hark, the herald angels sing,
glory to the new-born King.
2. Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
late in time behold him come,
offspring of a Virgin’s womb!
Veiled in flesh the Godheas see,
hail the incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
3. Hail the heaven-born Prince!
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.
