73. Hark! the herald angels sing

Eight 7's, with refrain

Mendelssohn:

Felix Mendelssohn, 1840;

Arr. William H. Cummings, 1850

Refrain

Charles Wesley, 1739;

Alt.

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 the angelic host proclaim

Christ is born in Bethlehem!

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!

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!

Amen.
