Christmas Carols in Prose #9: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Engel erscheint den Hirten (The angel appears to the shepherd)

Engel erscheint den Hirten (The angel appears to the shepherd)

Listen! The angel heralds sing glory to the newborn king! “Peace and mild mercy on earth, God and sinners are reconciled!” All you nations rise joyfully. Join the skies’ triumph. Proclaim with the angelic host—Christ is born in Bethlehem!

Hail the heaven-born prince of peace! Hail righteousness’s son! He brings light and life to all. He has risen like the sun with healing rays. Mildly he sets his glory aside. He was born that people¬†might not die anymore. He was born to raise earth’s children. He was born to give them second birth.

[Original Text: Charles Wesley]
