“Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings,
Ris’n 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!”
May the joy of that news-those glad tidings of great joy- be so prevalent in our hearts and minds that others ask: “… Why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?”
Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Coming One: the joy of every longing heart.

Also, I didn’t have time to make a better recording, so please forgive the background noise and dramatic pause toward the end. 😂 Merry Christmas! 🎄
