Verse 1:
F5
Hark! the herald angels sing, 'Glory to the new born King,
Dm7                             Csus4
Peace on earth, and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!'
F              B♭      C      F               B♭      C
Joyful, all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies;
B♭                              C          F      C     F
With th'angelic host proclaim, 'Christ is born in Bethlehem!'

Hark! the herald angels sing, 'Glory to the new born King!'
Verse 2:
Hail, the heav'n-born Prince of peace! Hail, the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings, risen 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 new born King!'
                      F                         C
    King of heaven, come down, King of heaven, come now
                   Dm7                     B♭                   F
    Let Your glory reign, shining like the day, King of heaven come.
                                              C
    King of heaven, rise up, who can stand against us?
                      Dm7                  B♭                    F
    You are strong to save, in Your mighty name, King of heaven, come.
    [1st time only]
    F    Csus4   Dm7    B♭2
    Oh,          oh.
Verse 3:
Christ, by highest heaven adored; Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold Him come, offspring of the Virgin's womb:
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 new born King!'  

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 host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
 
Hail the heav'n born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of Righteousness
Light and life to all He brings
Risen 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
 
King of heaven come down
King of heaven come now
Let your glory reign
Shining like the day
King of heaven come
 
King of heaven rise up
Who can stand against us     
You are strong to save
In Your mighty name
King of heaven come
 
Oh oh oh
 
Christ by highest heav'n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a virgin's womb
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
 
King of heaven come
King of heaven come
King of heaven come
King of heaven come
