HARK, THE HERALD ANGELS SING (CHRISTMAS CAROL)

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.

WHILE SHEPHERDS KEPT THEIR WATCHING / GO, TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN (CHRISTMAS CAROL)

Go, tell it on the mountain,
over the hills and ev’rywhere.
Go, tell it on the mountain
that Jesus Christ is born.

1. While shepherds kept their watching
o’er wand’ring flocks by night,
behold from out of heaven
there shone a holy light.

2. And lo, when they had seen it,
they all bowed down and prayed,
they travelled on together
to where the Babe was laid.

3. When I was a seeker,
I sought both night and day:
I asked my Lord to help me
and he showed me the way.

4. He made me a watchman
upon the city wall,
and if I am a Christian,
I am the least of all.
