Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Luke 2.

79

C. Wesley.

Hark! the herald angels sing,

“Glory to the new-born King!

Peace on earth, and mercy mild;

God and sinners reconciled.”

2 Joyful, all ye nations, rise;

Join the triumphs of the skies;

With th’ angelic host proclaim,

“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

3 See, 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.

4 Vailed in flesh the Godhead see!

Hail, th’ incarnate Deity!

Pleased as man with man to dwell,

Jesus, our Immanuel!

5 Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace!

Hail, the Son of Righteousness!

Light and life to all he brings,

Risen with healing in his wings.

6 Let us then with angels sing,

“Glory to the new-born King!

Peace on earth, and mercy mild;

God and sinners reconciled!”
