1. HARK! the herald-angels sing: "Glory to the new-born King; Peace on earth, and mercy mild; God and sinners reconciled."

2. Joyful, all ye nations! rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' angelic host, proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem."

3. 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.

4. Hail! the heaven-born Prince of peace!
Hail! the Sun of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Risen with healing in His wings.

5. Let us then with angels sing:
"Glory to the new-born King;
Peace on earth, and mercy mild;
God and sinners reconciled."

204. 8s & 7s.

1. SHEPHERDS! hail the wondrous stranger;
Now to Bethle'm speed your way;
Lo! in yonder humble manger,
Christ, the Lord, is born to-day:

2. Christ, by prophets long-predicted, Joy of Israel's chosen race; Light to Gentiles long-afflicted,

Lost in error's darkest maze.

Arranged from DK. ARNOLD.

2. Under Thy protection take;

Songs in the night season give;
Let me sleep to Thee, and wake;
Let me die to Thee, and live.

3. Loose me from the chains of sense,
Set me from the body free;
Draw with stronger influence
My unfettered soul to Thee;

4. In me, Lord, Thyself reveal;

Fill me with a sweet surprise;
Let me Thee, when waking, feel,
Let me in Thy image rise.

Begin, and never cease!"

1. "LORD, Thy glory fills the heaven; Earth is with its fullness stored; Unto Thee be glory given,

Holy, holy, holy Lord!"

Heaven is still with anthems ringing:
Earth takes up the angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy," singing,

"Lord of hosts, the Lord most High!" 2. Ever thus in God's high praises,

Brethren, let our tongues unite,
While our thoughts His greatness raises,
And our love His gifts excite.
With His seraph train before Him,

With His holy church below,
Thus unite we to adore Him,

Bid we thus our anthem flow:
3. "Lord, Thy glory fills the heaven;
Earth is with its fullness stored;
Unto Thee be glory given,

Holy, holy, holy Lord!
Thus, Thy glorious name confessing,
We adopt the angels' cry,
"Holy, holy, holy" blessing

Thee, the Lord our God most High!"

For their guidance He hath made.

Praise Him, angels in the height;

Never shall His promise fail;
God hath made His saints victorious,
Sin and death shall not prevail.

4. Praise the God of our salvation,

Hosts on high His power proclaim; Heaven and earth, and all creation, Laud and magnify His name! Hallelujah, Amen.

1. THE scene around me disappears,
And, borne to ancient regions,
While time recals the flight of years,
I see angelic legions
Descending in an orb of light,
Amidst the dark and silent night,
I hear celestial voices.

2. Tidings, glad tidings from above,
To every age and nation;
Tidings, glad tidings,-God is love;

To man He sends salvation;
His Son beloved, His only Son,
The work of mercy hath begun;
Give to His name the glory!

3. Through David's city I am led;
Here all around are sleeping;
A light directs to yon poor shed,

Where lonely watch is keeping:
I enter;-ah! what glories shine!
Is this Immanuel's earthly shrine?
Messiah's infant temple?

4. It is; it is;-and I adore

This Stranger meek and lowly,
As saints and seraphs bow before
The throne of God thrice holy;
Faith through the vail of flesh can see
The face of Thy divinity,

My Lord, my God, my Saviour!
