Hark! the Herald Angels Sing

There is nothing quite as unique as Christmas carols. Many of them are a hundred years old or older and yet they continue to be recorded and sung every year. We hear them on the radio, in department stores, and in many holiday movies. Even non-Christians can’t help but love and sing them, yet how often do people stop and consider what these songs mean? Most carols are full of rich Biblical and theological language and imagery. In Part 1 of this series, we will look at the well known and loved carol, “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” to learn what this song communicates about the message of Christmas and our response to that message.
