Hark the Herald Angels Sing Lyrics

three angel figurines singing by a lit red candle

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!"

Christ, by highest heav'n adored
Christ, the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold him come
Offspring of the favored one
Veil'd in flesh, the Godhead see
Hail, th'incarnate Deity
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail! the heav'n-born Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings
Risen with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sone of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"
