64. Hail Him King

1 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 and sing,
Join the triumphs of your King,
With angelic hosts aloud proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Hail Him King,
Hail Him King.
Crown Him Lord o’er earth and sky, and
Hail Him King.

2 Christ, by highest heav’n adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail incarnate Deity;
Come and worship humbly at his feet;
Yield to him the homage meet;
From the manger raise him to the throne,
Homage due to God alone. [Refrain]

3 Hail the heav’n-born Prince of peace!
Hail the Son of righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings;
Ris’n with healing in his wings.
Wonderful in counsel, come and see,
Christ th’incarnate Deity;
Sire of the ages, ne’er to cease;
King of kings, and Prince of peace. [Refrain]
