AGH 124

Verse 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 the angelic host proclaim,
''Christ is born in Bethlehem.''

Chorus

Hark! The heralds angels sing
Glory to the new born king.

Verse 2

Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring 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:

Verse 3

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:
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,
