Hark! the herald angels sing,
„Glory to the newborn King;
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!“
See, 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.
Hail, the holy Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of righteousness;
Light and life to all He brings,
Ris’n with healing in His wings.
Let us all then with angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!”
