Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Song Video


Hark! the herald angels sing, -
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled".
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem".
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!'.

Christ, by highest heav'n adored:
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the favored one.
Veil'd in flesh, the Godhead see;
Hail, th'incarnate Deity:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!'.

Hail! the heav'n-born Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son 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 sone of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!'.

Interesting sample--you all are very right--there is no actually singing of the song. How is someone supposed to learn the tune to this beautiful, traditional Christmas carol from a simple guitar lesson on playing chords and strumming? I'm not sure if I ever thought that the lyrics to this old hymn were cute. The song depicts the joy of the birth of Jesus Christ of the Christian faith. "Glory to the newborn King!" Thanks, at least, for printing the lyrics!

Learned this song in elementary school. Kinda glad I went private, cause this song is not that difficult. Once you learn the first verse the other 2 are the exact same.
