O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
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 triumphs of the skies;
With th'angelic hosts proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."

Christ, by highest heavn adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord!
Long desired, behold Him come,
Finding here His humble home.
Veiled in flesh the God-head see,
Hail th'incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with men to dwell,
Jesus our Immanuel.

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.
Let us then with angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!
Peace on earth and mercies mild;
God and sinners reconciled."

Chorus:
Hark! The herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King."
