Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

     Charles Wesley                                         Felix Mendelssohn

Hark! the herald anges 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 boen 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 Diety:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Immanuel!


Hail! the hev'nborn Price 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 sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
