354. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

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 angelic hosts proclaim:
Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King.

2 Christ, by highest heav'n adored,
Christ, the ever-lasting Lord,
Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us Thy humble home.
Veiled in flesh, the God-head see;
Hail, th'incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with men to dwell;
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King.

3 Hail the heav'nly Prince of peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Ris'n 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 new-born King.

Amen.
