Luke 2:14-18 (Listen)

14 “Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them. (ESV)

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!” 

4. Come, Desire of nations, come, 
Fix in us Thy humble home; 
Oh, to all Thyself impart, 
Formed in each believing heart! 
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, 
“Glory to the new-born King!”
