Hark! how all the welkin rings

Glory to the King of kings!

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 to-day!

CHRIST, by highest Heaven adored;

CHRIST, the Everlasting LORD;

Late in time behold Him come,

Offspring of a Virgin's womb:

Veil'd in flesh the Godhead see;

Hail, th' Incarnate Deity,

Pleased as man with men t' appear,

JESUS, our Immanuel here!

178

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.
