Lyrics ~ Charles Wesley, 1707-1788

Music ~ Felix Mendelssohn, 1809-1847

Stanza 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!"

Hark! the herald angels sing,

"Glory to the new-born King!"

Stanza 2:

Christ, by highest heav'n 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 man to dwell;

Jesus, our Immanuel!

Hark! the herald angels sing,

"Glory to the new-born King!"

Stanza 3:

HaiI, the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!

Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!

Light and life to all He brings,

Ris'n with healing in His wings.

Mild He leaves His throne on high,

Born that man no more may die;

Born to raise the sons of earth;

Born to give them second birth.

Hark! the herald angels sing,

"Glory to the new-born King!"

Stanza 4:

Come, Desire of nations, come,

Fix in us Thy humble home;

Rise, the woman's conq'ring seed,

Bruise in us the serpent's head,

Adam's likeness now efface,

Stamp Thine image in its place:

Second Adam from above,

Reinstate us in Thy love.

Hark! the herald angels sing,

"Glory to the new-born King!"
