Hark The Herald Angels Sing Lyrics
Wesley's hymn for Christmas day "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing"
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;
Universal Nature, say,
Christ the Lord is born today!
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 appear,
Jesus, our Immanuel, here!
Hail, the heavenly Prince of Peace,
Hail, the Sun 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.
Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us Thy humble home;
O, to all Thy self impart.
Formed in each believing heart!
