1 Hark! the herald angels sing,
Jesus, the Light of the world;
"Glory to the new-born King,"
Jesus, the Light of the world.

We’ll walk in the light, beautiful light,
come where the dewdrops of mercy are bright.
Shine all around us by day and by night,
Jesus, the Light of the world.

2 Joyful, all you nations, rise.
Jesus, the Light of the world;
join the triumph of the skies;
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

3 Christ, by highest heav'n adored,
Jesus, the Light of the world.
Christ, the everlasting Lord!
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]

4 Hail, the heav'en-born Prince of Peace!
Jesus, the Light of the world.
Hail, the Sun of righteousness!
Jesus, the Light of the world. [Refrain]
