1.

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.

2.
 
Christ, by highest heaven adored; 
Christ, the everlasting Lord; 
Late in time behold him come, 
Offspring of the Virgin's womb. 
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; 
Hail the incarnate Deity, 
Pleased as man with man to dwell; 
Jesus, our Emmanuel.

 Hark the herald angels sing 
Glory to the newborn King.

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. 
Risen with healing in his wings, 
Light and life to all he brings, 
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness 
Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace.

 Hark the herald angels sing 
Glory to the newborn King.
