Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Lyrics

Lyrics by Charles Wesley (1739) 
Music by Franz Mendelssohn (1840) 
Music Adapted by William Cummings (1850) 
Christmas Hymn and Carol

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!"

Hark! The herald angels sing 
"Glory to the newborn King!" 
Amen.

Christ, by highest heav'n adored; 
Christ, the everlasting Lord; 
Late in time behold Him come, 
Offspring of the Virgin's womb. 
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; 
Hail th'Incarnate Deity, 
Pleased as man with man to dwell; 
Jesus, our Emmanuel!

Hark! The herald angels sing 
"Glory to the newborn King!" 
Amen.

Mild He lays His glory by, 
Born that man no more may die, 
Born to raise the sons of earth, 
Born to give the 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!

Hark! The herald angels sing 
"Glory to the newborn King!" 
Amen.
