Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth;
and break forth into singing, O mountains:
for the Lord hath comforted his people,
and will have mercy upon his afflicted.

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel;
for he hath visited and redeeamed his people,
And hath raised up a mighty salvation
for us in the house of his servant David;

Hark! the Herald Angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on Earth, and Mercy mild,
God and Sinners reconcil'd.

Joyful all ye Nations rise,
Join the triumph of the Skies;
With th'angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Hark! the Herald Angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
