Hark the Herald Angels Sing
by Gilbert Yslas



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

2. Christ, by highest heav’n ador’d
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
Pleas’d as Man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Immanuel
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the new born King

3. 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 new born King

4. Come, Desire of nations, come
Fix in us Thy humble home
Rise, the woman’s conquering 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
