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

2. Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord.
Late in time behold Him come,
Off-spring of a Virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
Hail, the incarnate deity
Pleased as Man with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark! the hearld angels sing
Glory to the new-born King.

3. 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.
Now 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 hearld angels sing
Glory to the new-born King.

4. Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us Thy humble home;
Oh, to all Thyself impart,
Formed in each believing heart!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King,
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!
Hark! the hearld angels sing
Glory to the new-born King.

5. Adam's likeness, Lord, efface,
Stamp Thine image in its place;
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in Thy love.
Let us Thee, though lost, regain,
Thee, the Life, the inner man;
O, to all Thyself impart,
Formed in each believing heart.
Hark! the hearld angels sing
Glory to the new-born King.
