Hark! how all the welkin rings;
Glory to the King of Kings,
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled.
Joyful, all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
Christ, the Lord is born today.
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 men to appear,
Jesus, our Emmanuel here!
Hail the heav`nly Prince of peace!
Hail to Son of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings.
