~Hark! the Herald Angels Sing


       One of the most famous of Charles Wesley’s hymns is the Christmas carol: “Hark! the Herald Angels Sing.”  It was written in 1738, about one year after Wesley’s conversion. It is almost impossible to pick up a church hymnal today and find this hymn omitted.
       It is said that no other man swayed the minds of the people of England as did John Wesley. Yet, the sermons of John are silenced and forgotten in England today, while the songs of his brother Charles are heard and sung around the world. Probably none is so familiar as:

Hark! the herald angels sing,

Glory to the new-born King;

Peace on earth, and mercy mild;

God and sinners reconciled.

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing[1]

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!

Chorus  Hark! the herald angels sing

Glory to the new-born King!

2           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!

3           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!
