    Though I don’t know anything about the blogger, this is an excellent article….


    Though often lumped together with all the other Christmas carols, songs like this one offer far more than we normally give thought to. Every year, we sing about Jesus mildly laying His glories by, but if you’re like me, you seldom stop to consider what these amazing lyrics really mean. It’s all too easy.

    So this year, let’s meditate on the gospel truths that this and other Christmas hymns so wonderfully proclaim and be encouraged “that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” (1 Tim 1:15).

    “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” is practically filled with encouraging good news, but let me draw your attention to one verse in particular, along with some of its respective biblical references.

    Christ, by highest Heav’n adored; [Ps 148:1-2, Rev 5:11-12]
    Christ the everlasting Lord; [Is 9:6, Matt 3:3, 1 Cor 11:26, Col 2:6, Rev 22:13]
    Late in time, behold Him come, [1 Pet 1:10-12, 1 Pet 1:20, Heb 11:39-40]
    Offspring of a virgin’s womb. [Is 7:14, Matt 1:23, Matt 1:25, Luke 1:31-35]
    Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; [Jn 6:51, Rom 8:3, 1 Tim 3:16, 1 Jn 4:2]
    Hail th’incarnate Deity, [Lk 5:20-21, Jn 1:1, Jn 8:58, Col 2:9, Tit 2:13]
    Pleased with us in flesh to dwell, [Jn 1:14,Phil 2:7-8, Col 1:22, 2 Jn 7]
    Jesus our Emmanuel. [Is 7:14, Matt 1:23, Matt 28:20]
    Hark! the herald angels sing, [Lk 2:13-14]
    ‘Glory to the newborn King!’ [Lk 2:10-14]

    Charles Wesley wrote the lyrics of “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” in the mid-1700s.

    I have seen this posted in several places and just didn’t take time to watch it. I sure am glad I did as I begin my labors today. Thank you Stella.

    This year, more than ever, I am in danger of losing sight of why we celebrate and getting lost in tasks and concerns.
