"Hark! The Herald Angels Sing/King of Heaven"

Hey! Hey!


Verse 1
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 hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King


Verse 2
Hail the heaven born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son 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 newborn King


Chorus
King of Heaven come down
King of Heaven come now
Let Your glory reign shining like the day
King of Heaven come
King of Heaven rise up
Who can stand against us
You are strong to save
In Your mighty name King of Heaven come


Interlude
Oh oh oh oh oh (x2)


Verse 3
Christ by highest heaven adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a virgin's womb
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 the newborn King


Chorus
King of Heaven come down
King of Heaven come now
Let Your glory reign shining like the day
King of Heaven come
King of Heaven rise up
Who can stand against us
You are strong to save
In Your mighty name King of Heaven come

King of Heaven come now
Let Your glory reign shining like the day
King of Heaven come

Words by Christina Rossetti

"What Can I Give Him"

What can I give Him poor as I am
If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb
If I were a Wise One I would do my part yet
What can I give Him I will give my heart

Marcia McFee and Chuck Bell

"Right Here Right Now"

Right here and right now
We open our senses
To see and perceive
The gifts we’ve been given
To know and believe
That what we must do
Is open our hearts to
Let all gifts flow through
