Hark the Angels

SING HOSANNAS
(Faircloth/Polish Carol)

Hark to the story angels are telling,
Of the birth of Jesus,
Born in a manger midst cattle lowly,
Is the Babe most holy.

Sing, all you angels,
Sing, all you shepherds!
Sing to the little Babe in the manger;
Sing a soft hosanna,
Sing a loud hosanna,
Jesus Christ is born today.

Shepherds a-keeping watch on the hillside
Heard the wondrous story,
Knelt down in wonder, gazed at the glory
Suddenly appearing.

Sing, all you angels,
Sing, all you shepherds!
Sing to the little Babe in the manger;
Sing a soft hosanna,
Sing a loud hosanna,
Jesus Christ is born today.

Come, all you people, come to the manger,
Worship and adore Him;
Sing as the angels, kneel as the shepherds,
To the Christ our Savior.

Sing, all you angels,
Sing, all you shepherds!
Sing to the little Babe in the manger;
Sing a soft hosanna,
Sing a loud hosanna,
Jesus Christ is born today.

HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING
(Wesley, Whitefield/Mendelssohn, arr. Cummings)

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 triumph of the skies,
With angelic hosts proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”

Hark!  The herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King.”

Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,
Hail th’incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Immanuel.

Hark!  The herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King.”

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Ris’n with healing in His wings.
Mild 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.

Hark!  The Herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King.”
