Hark the Herald Angels Sing
[unknown] Lyrics


Hark the herald angels sing

Hark the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn king
Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinner reconciled
Joyful all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies
With angelic host proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the new-born king.

Christ, by highest heaven adored, Christ the everlasting lord
Late in time behold him come, off-spring of the virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail th'incarnate deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus our Emmanuel.
Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the new-born king.

Hark the heav'n-born Prince of Peace, Hail, the Sun of Righteousness
Light and life to all He brings, Ris'n with healing in His wings.
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.
Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the new-born king.

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 the 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 a Virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man 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
Ris'n with healing in His wings
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
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

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 sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hark! the Herald Angels Sing...In 1771, a wealthy Irishman offered to adopt Charles Wesley and make him his legal heir. The thirteen year old boy refused the offer, choosing to continue his way through school under very trying circumstances. This turned out to be one of the most momentous decisions of his life. The boy who as adopted in place of Charles became earl, and grandfather of the famous Duke of Wellington, while the young Wesley achieved immortal fame through his hymns. He is often called "The Prince of Hymn Writers".
Charles Wesley and his older brother, john (founder of the Methodist Church) made a brief visit to America in 1735. The two brother came to Georgia as secretaries to General Oglethorpe. They returned to England the following year. It is said that Charles became interested in hymn on hearing a group of German Moravians singing the hymns aboard ship.
Wesley is said to have written over six thousand hymns and spiritual songs. His two greatest are: Jesus Lover of My soul (1740) and Hark! the Herald Angels sing (1739). The latter, in its original form, opened with the lines "Hark! the Herald Angels sing (1739). The latter, in its original form, opened with the lines "hark how all the welkin ring, glory to the King of Kings!" Through the course of
time, various revisions have been made.
It is a curious fact that the Mendelssohn melody, which is so admirably suited to the song, is an adaptation. In 1840, Felix Mendelssohn composed a cantata to commemorate the invention of printing. This cantata, called "Festgesang" (Festival Song), was presented at the great festival held at Leipzig. fifteen years later (1855). Dr. W.H. Cummings, organist at Waltham Abbey, England, adapted the melody of the second chorus of Mendelssohn's cantata to Wesley's Christmas hymn. He arranged it for his choir and presented it on Christmas day. The new melody was so well received that it was published the following year and soon became the accepted version of the hymn.
Mendelssohn was not completely satisfied with the original words to this melody in the Festgesang. He thought it out to have other words but not sacred words. This is verified by a very definite
statement which he made in a letter to his publishers in England concerning a possible English translation. Quotations from this letter were published in 1933, by Dr. Dearmer. in his Songs of Praise.
Had Mendelssohn lived to hear his melody sung to the sacred words of Hark! the Herald Angels Sing, we wonder if it would not have won his enthusiastic acclaim , as it has won the acclaim of millions throughout all Christendom.
Thank you Celtic Women!!
