Christmas Hymn

By Henry Clegg, Jr.

Hark! Hark! The tidings angels bring,
    Jesus is born today!
Let every heart unite to sing
    And chant the glorious day.

Jesus is born in Bethlehem
    Of meek and humble birth,
But soon he'll sit on David's Throne
    And reign over all the earth.

Jesus born, the message flies
    Through Heaven and earth and hell,
And all the heavenly hosts combine
    The glorious news to swell.

The dead shall hear the welcome sound,
    Jesus is born to save,
He'll burst the barriers of the tomb
    And triumph over the grave.

Glory to God who reigns on high
    Let all creation sing
And celebrate Messiah's birth,
    Our future Lord and King.
