1 HARK ! the herald-angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King ; · Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled !
Hark! the herald-angels sing,
Glory to the new-born King. 2 Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumphs of the skies,
3 Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace !
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Risen with healing in his wings. 4 Mild He lays his glories by,
Born that man no more may die;
WHILE humble shepherds watch'd their flocks,
In Bethlehem’s fields by night,
And filld the plains with light.
Had seized their troubled mind,) “ Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.
Is born, of David's line,
And this shall be the sign :
To human view display'd,
And in a manger laid."
Appear'd a shining throng
They sang their joyful song : 6 " All glory be to God on high,
And on the earth be peace,
And never more shall cease.”
1 Lo, He comes, in clouds descending,
Once for favour'd sinners slain;
Hallelujah! Amen. 2 Every eye shall now behold Him,
Robed in dreadful majesty !
Hallelujah! Amen. 3 Now salvation ! long expected !
See, in solemn pomp to share,
Hallelujah! Amen. 4 Yea, Amen ! let all adore Thee,
High on thine eternal throne :
Hallelujah! Amen. HYMN FOR A BIRTHDAY. 1 LORD of life, whose word of power
Did first inspire my breath ; ”T is Thou hast kept me to this hour
From danger and from death.
The past I now review;
How great Thy mercies too!
Through all my infant days;
That still Thy love displays.
And strengthen me in grace ;
And run the Christian race. 5 How long or short my course may be,
"T is not for me to know ;
And in Thy favour grow. 6 From early youth be Thou my Guide,
My Father, and my Friend ;
Till I to heaven ascend.
1 FROM Greenland's icy mountains,
From India's coral strand, Where Afric's sunny fountains
Roll down their golden sand ;
From many a palmy plain,
Their land from error's chain. 2 What though the spicy breezes
Blow soft o'er Java’s isle,
And only man is vile:
The gifts of God are strewn ;
Bows down to wood and stone ! 3 Can we whose souls are lighted
With wisdom from on high,
The lamp of life deny ?
The joyful sound proclaim,
Has learn'd Messiah's Name.
