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!”

Jesus our Emmanuel.
Hail the heav’nly Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings, [John 10 &14]

Born that man no more may die. [John 11]
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth. [John 1:12-14]

Reinstate us in Thy love.
Let us Thee, though lost, regain,
