207. The Herald Angels

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,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’angelic host proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”

2 Mild He lays His glory by,
Born that men no more may die,
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth,
Ris’n with healing in His wings,
Light and life to all He brings,
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Hail! the heav’n born prince of peace.
