1 Hark! the herald angels sing.
Jesus, the light of the world.
Glory to the new-born King,
Jesus, the light of the world.

We’ll walk in the light, beautiful light.
Come where the dewdrops of mercy shine bright.
Oh, shine all around us by day and by night.
Jesus, the light of the world.

2 Joyful, all ye nations, rise.
Jesus, the light of the world.
Join the triumph of the skies.
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]

3 Christ, by highest heaven adored;
Jesus, the light of the world.
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]

Jesus, the light of the world.
Hail, the Sun of righteousness!
Jesus, the light of the world. [Refrain]
