The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

An Herald From the King of Kings

For Christmas

An Angel of the Lord
(most believe it is the Angel Gabriel)

Words: Charles Wesley, Hymns on the Four Gospels: St. Luke, #1170. “Good tidings...which shall be to all people.” Gospel of St. Luke ii. 10.

An herald from the King of kings
    He comes our guilty fears to chase,
Good tidings of great joy He brings,
    Great joy to Adam's favour'd race;
Not one of all our ransom'd kind
    But may the gospel-grace receive,
Born in himself his Saviour find,
    And one with his Creator live.
