Hark! The Herald Angels Sing – words

Hello choristers! I hope you all made it safely home today. It is still snowing at my house! There are several branches down around my yard. Tonight I am going into Salt Lake to hear my oldest son, Shelby, sing in a concert. I am excited!
Here are the words to Hark! The Herald Angels Sing. It will be the hymn we recess out to at the carol services.

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.

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 th’incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.

Hail the heav’n-born 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.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King.
