2Hark the herald-angels sing, Glory to the new-born King, Carol 1Hark the herald-angels sing,Glory to the new-born King,Peace on earth and mercy mild,God and sinners reconciled.Joyful, all ye nations, rise,Join the triumph of the skies;With the angelic host proclaim:‘Christ is born in Bethlehem’.Hark! The herald-angels singGlory to the new-born King.
3Christ, 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, the incarnate Deity!Pleased as man with men to dwell,Jesus, our Immanuel!Hark! The herald-angels singGlory to the new-born King.
4Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Sun of Righteousness!Light and life to all he brings,Risen with healing in his wings.Mild he lays his glory by,Born that we no more may die,Born to raise the sons of earth,Born to give them second birth.Hark! The herald-angels singGlory to the new-born King.
6Once in royal David’s city Stood a lowly cattle-shed, Carol 2Once in royal David’s cityStood a lowly cattle-shed,Where a mother laid her babyIn a manger for his bed:Mary was that mother mild,Jesus Christ her little child.
7He came down to earth from heaven Who is God and Lord of all,And his shelter was a stable,And his cradle was a stall;With the poor and mean and lowlyLived on earth our Saviour holy.
8And our eyes at last shall see him, Through his own redeeming love,For that child so dear and gentleIs our Lord in heaven above;And he leads his children onTo the place where he is gone.
9Not in that poor lowly stable, With the oxen standing by, We shall see him; but in heaven,Set at God’s right hand on high;When like stars his children crownedAll in white shall stand around.Cecil Frances Alexander ( )
11O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Carol 3O little town of Bethlehem,How still we see thee lie!Above thy deep and dreamless sleepThe silent stars go by.Yet in thy dark street shinethThe everlasting light;The hopes and fears of all the yearsAre met in thee tonight.
12O morning stars, together Proclaim the holy birth,And praises sing to God the King,And peace to all on earth!For Christ is born of Mary;And, gathered all above,While mortals sleep, the angels keepTheir watch of wondering love.
13O holy child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin, and enter in;Be born in us today!We hear the Christmas angelsThe great glad tidings tell;O come to us, abide with us,Our Lord Immanuel.Phillips Brooks (
15In the bleak mid-winter Frosty wind made moan, Carol 4In the bleak mid-winterFrosty wind made moan,Earth stood hard as iron,Water like a stone;Snow had fallen, snow on snow,Snow on snow,In the bleak mid-winter,Long ago.
16Our God, heav’n cannot hold him, Nor earth sustain;Heav’n and earth shall flee awayWhen he comes to reign.In the bleak mid-winterA stable-place sufficedThe Lord God Almighty,Jesus Christ.
17Yet what I can I give him— Give my heart. What can I give him,Poor as I am?If I were a shepherdI would bring a lamb;If I were a wise manI would do my part;Yet what I can I give him—Give my heart.Christina Georgina Rossetti ( )
19Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, Carol 5Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay,The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
20The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.I love thee, Lord Jesus! Look down from the sky,And stay by my side until morning is nigh.
21Be near me, Lord Jesus; I ask thee to stay Close by me for ever, and love me, I pray.Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,And fit us for heaven, to live with thee there.Anonymous
23While shepherds watched their flocks by night, Carol 6While shepherds watched their flocks by night,All seated on the ground,The angel of the Lord came down,And glory shone around.‘Fear not,’ said he (for mighty dreadHad seized their troubled mind),‘Glad tidings of great joy I bringTo you and humankind.
24Thus spake the seraph; and forthwith Appeared a shining throngOf angels praising God, and thusAddressed their joyful song:‘All glory be to God on high,And to the earth be peace;Goodwill henceforth from heaven to allBegin and never cease.’Nahum Tate ( )
26Silent night, holy night: Sleeps the world; hid from sight, Carol 7Silent night, holy night:Sleeps the world; hid from sight,Mary and Joseph in stable bareWatch o’er the child so beloved and fairSleeping in heavenly rest.Shepherds first saw the light,Heard resounding clear and long,Far and near, the angel-song:‘Christ the Redeemer is here!’
27Silent night, holy night: Son of God, O how bright Love is smiling from thy face!Strikes for us now the hour of grace,Saviour, since thou art born!Joseph Mohr (Tr. Stopford Angus Brooke ( )
29See, amid the winter’s snow, Born for us on earth below, Carol 8See, amid the winter’s snow,Born for us on earth below,See, the Lamb of God appears,Promised from eternal years!Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!Sing through all Jerusalem:Christ is born in Bethlehem!
30Lo, within a manger liesHe who built the starry skies,He who, throned in height sublime,Sits amid the cherubim!Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!Sing through all Jerusalem:Christ is born in Bethlehem!
31What a tender love was thine, Thus to come from highest bliss Sacred Infant, all divine,What a tender love was thine,Thus to come from highest blissDown to such a world as this!Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!Hail, redemption’s happy dawn!Sing through all Jerusalem:Christ is born in Bethlehem!Edward Caswall ( )
33It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old, Carol 9It came upon the midnight clear,That glorious song of old,From angels bending near the earthTo touch their harps of gold:‘Peace on the earth, goodwill to all,From heaven’s all-gracious King!’The world in solemn stillness layTo hear the angels sing.
34Yet with the woes of sin and strife The world has suffered long;Beneath the angel strain have rolledTwo thousand years of wrong;And man, at war, with man, hears notThe love-song which they bring.O hush the noise, ye men of strife,And hear the angels sing!
35For lo, the days are hastening on, To prophets shown of old, When with the ever-circling yearsShall come the time foretold,When the new heaven and earth shall ownThe Prince of Peace their King,And all the world repeat the songWhich now the angels sing.Edmund Hamilton Sears ( )
37Ding dong! Merrily on high In heaven the bells are ringing. Carol 10Ding dong! Merrily on highIn heaven the bells are ringing.Ding dong! Verily the skyIs riven with angels singing:Gloria, hosanna in excelsis;Gloria, hosanna in excelsis!
38E’en so, here below, below, Let steeple bells be swungen;And i-o, i-o, i-o,By priest and people sungen!Gloria, hosanna in excelsis;Gloria, hosanna in excelsis!
39Pray you, dutifully prime Your matin chime, ye ringers; May you beautifully rimeYour eve-time song, ye singers:Gloria, hosanna in excelsis;Gloria, hosanna in excelsis!George Ratcliffe Woodward ( )
41O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem; Come and behold him, Carol 11O come, all ye faithful,Joyful and triumphant,O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;Come and behold him,Born the King of angels:O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
42True God of true God,Light of Light eternal,Lo, he abhors not the virgin’s womb;Son of the Father,Begotten, not created:O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
43Lo, star-led chieftains, Magi, Christ adoring,Offer him incense, gold, and myrrh;We to the Christ-childBring our hearts’ oblations:O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
44Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above: ‘Glory to God In the highest’: Sing, choirs of angels,Sing in exultation,Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above:‘Glory to GodIn the highest’:O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.18th CenturyTr. Frederick Oakley ( )
