147. 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.

2 Joyful, all ye nations, rise;
Join the triumphs of the skies;
With the angelic host proclaim,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

3 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.

4 Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings.

5 Let us then with angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!
