    Verse 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 angelic host proclaim,
    Christ is born in Bethlehem.

    Chorus
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the new-born King.

    Verse 2
    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.
    Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
    Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
    Light and life to all He brings,
    Risen with healing in His wings.

    Chorus
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the new-born King.

    Verse 3
    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, Lord, efface;
    Stamp Thy image in its place;
    Oh to all Thyself impart,
    Form'd in each believing heart.

    Chorus
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    Glory to the new-born King.
