A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

Hark! The Herald Angels sing

Adapted by G. Whitefield, 1739

Christ, by highest heav'n adored!
Christ, the everlasting Lord!
Long desired, behold Him come–
Offspring of the Virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail the incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King."
