Hark the herald - Resound Version

Added 6th December 2016


If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

A special, unusual seasonal offering - this is the version of Hark the Herald that we've used in concerts for the past couple of years. We thought you might like it! The demo recording is exactly that, so we've made it a free download - it may not make your Christmas listening top-10, but it gives you a good idea how it goes. The choir arrangement is a backing choir with lots of mms and oohs, until they join in fully for verse 3. Great fun!
Hark! The herald angels sing
‘Glory to the new-born King!
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!’
Joyful, all ye nations rise,
join the triumph of the skies,
with the angelic host proclaim,
‘Christ is born in Bethlehem.’
Hark! the herald angels sing:
‘Glory to the new-born 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 Immanuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing:
‘Glory to the new-born King.’
Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail, the Sun 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 new-born King.’
Themes: Christmas

We used this version of Hark the Herald in our 'Christmas Songs' concerts over the past couple of years and people enjoyed it, so we thought we'd offer it to you this Christmas, just in case it suits your situation and you might find it useful.
