Hark! Hark! Hark!
Hark the herald angels sing,
"Glory! Glory! Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled,
God and sinners reconciled."

Joy! Joy! Joy!
Joyful all ye nations rise;
Join the, join the,
Join the triumph of the skies.
With th' angelic host proclaim,
With th' angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem!"
