Hark!


Jerusalem // 2012
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
 

Christ 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 man to dwell
 

Jesus, our Emmanuel
 

Hark! The herald angels sing
 

Glory to the newborn King
 

Hail, the heaven 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

I was trying to figure out what to share today, but I think this song says it all. Although I love all the Christmas carols, ‘Hark! The Herald Angels Sing’ is a particular favorite of mine as it so beautifully describes the immense joy we’re celebrating today. And while Cameron and I didn’t end up visiting Bethlehem on our trip to Israel last month, we were able to visit many other cities where Christ spent time including Nazareth and Jerusalem. That experience has definitely helped to give the Christmas story renewed meaning this holiday season! {I shared one photo from Israel above, I’ll be sharing the rest in January!}
 
I hope that each and every one of you have a very blessed day full of family (or friends, if you can’t be with family!), food, and fun! Merry Christmas!! Xoxo
