1. Hark! the herald angels singing,
"Glory be to God!"
While the shepherds watch are keeping
On the sod.

2. "Peace on earth," to man proclaiming
Joyous news to all:
Tidings great to mortals bringing,
Saved from thrall.

3. Lo, in Bethlehem, in a manger,
God Incarnate lies;
Come, to save a world in danger,
From the skies.

4. Hasten, shepherds, to adore Him!
Hail the Saviour – King!
Wise men, lay your gifts before Him –
Offerings bring.

5. Though an Infant, mean and lowly,
He shall ever reign,
Prince of Peace, and Judge Most Holy,
Right maintain.

6. Let the earth b e filled with gladness
On this happy morn;
Vanish sorrow, fear, and sadness,
Christ is born!

7. Mortals own your God and Saviour!
Join the angel lays;
Shout aloud His Name, and ever
Sing His praise.

8. Hail! Emmanuel! King of Glory!
Great Deliverer, hail!
May Thy birth, in Bethlehem’s story,
Never fail.
