Christmas for dummies
Hark! The herald angels sing

1. 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!”
2. Christ, by highest heav’n adored;
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold Him come,
Offspring of the favored one.

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th’Incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with men 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.

Ris’n with healing in his wings,
Light and life to all He brings,
Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Hail, the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
