       This song must be t most scriptural Christmas song that I have ever heard. So were going to take different lines from this song & see what t Bible says about it. T Word of God will give us even more detail to t meaning of this song.

   I. T first line of that song is "Hark, t herald angels sing, glory to t new born king; peace on earth, and mercy mild.

           A. LUKE 2:8-14

                      1. Here we see why t angels were singing, because Jesus was born.

                                         a. T angels appeared to these shepherds as a sign to them, but it's also a sign to us.

                                         b. There were many people that had knowledge that t Son of God was born this day.

                                              i. We had these shepherds, there was also Mary, Elizabeth, Joseph, t Wise men, w/ t wise man must have a big company of people, There was Simeon & Anna.

                                              ii. LUKE 2:25-32

                                  c. We also have Anna mentioned right here in these Vs.

                                              i. LUKE 2:37-38

                                  d. There were many witnesses to testify that Jesus was t son of God.

                                              i. But t most important is that God testifies that Jesus is His son.

                                              ii. MATT 3:17

                                              iii. (2PET 1:17) says, "For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."

                                              Iv. T Father testifies that Jesus is t Son of God.

           B. In that 1st line that we read of "Hark, t hearld angels sing," he calls Jesus t "New Born King"

                      1. In t Book of (REV 19:16) And he hath on {his} vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

                      2. Then he goes on to say "Peace on earth," Jesus is t only one that will bring peace on earth.

                                  i. In (ISA 9:6) Jesus is called "The Prince of Peace."

           C. "God & sinners reconciled."

                      1. 2COR 5:18

                                  a. (ROM 5:10) Says, "When we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by is life.

                                  b. (COL 1:21) Says, "And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in {your} mind by wicked works, yet now hath he reconciled."

                                              i. You are now reconciled back to God thru t cross of Jesus.

                      2. "Joyful, all ye nations, rise, join t triumph of t skies; w/ angelic host proclaim, Christ is Born in Bethlehem."

                                  a. If you remember t V that we read in (LUKE 2:11) T angelic host proclaimed For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

                                                     i. T city of David is t town of Bethlehem.

                                  b. Look at LUKE 2:3-7

                                              i. That's just t 1st stanza.

   II. "Christ by highest heaven adored."

           A. (PHIL 2:9 & 10) Says, "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of {things} in heaven, and {things} in earth, and {things} under the earth;

           B. "Christ, t Everlasting Lord."

                      2. "Late in time behold Him come, off-spring of a virgin's womb."

                                         a. LUKE 1:26-31

                                         b. Even in (ISA 7:14) it says that Jesus would be born from a virgin.

           C. "Veiled in flesh t God-head see, hail t incarnate deity! Pleased as man w/ man to dwell, Jesus our Immanuel."

                             1. JOHN 1:1-3,14

                                         a. Jesus who is t 2nd person of t God-Head, took on human from to become a man. Setting aside all of His deity to become a man, he is still God t Son.

                                  b. In (ISA 7:14) Isaiah says that He shall be called IMMANUEL. Which means "God is w/ us."

   III. Nail t heaven born prince of peace, hail t son of righteousness.

                 B. "Light & life to all He bring."

                             1. Jesus said in (JOHN 8:12) "I am the light of the world."

                             2. He also said in (JOHN 14:6) "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

                 C. "Risen w/ healing in His wings."

           D. "Mild He lays His glory by, born that man no more may die; Born to raise t sons of Earth, born to give them 2nd birth."

                             1. Jesus said to Nicodemus in (JOHN 3:3, 7),"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

                             2. That is t 2nd birth.

   IV. "Come, desire of nations, come! Fix in us thy humble home: Rise, t woman's conquering seed, bruise in us t serpent's head."

                 B. "Adam's likeness now efface, stamp t image in its place: Second Adam from above, reinstate us in thy love. "

                      1. T word "Efface" means to erase.
