Birthday Of A King/Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Lyrics
In the little village of Bethlehem There lay a child one day And the sky was bright with a Holy light O'er the place where Jesus lay.
Chorus Halleluia, oh how the angels sang. Halleluia, how it rang. And the sky was bright with God's holy light. It was the birthday of the king.
It was a humble birthplace but oh how much God gave to us that day. From the manger bed what a path was led What a perfect, holy way.
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 voice proclaim Christ is born on Bethlehem. Hark! The herald angels sing Glory to the newborn King.
