Hark, what are the angels singing?

With a slight twist of words, here's a Christmas carol that might sound familiar:

Hark, how all the welkin rings,
"Glory to the King of kings;
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconcil'd!"
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
Universal nature say,
"Christ the Lord is born to-day!"

Those were the original words to "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing," written in the 19th century by Charles Wesley. Pastor Mark Roberts of the Irvine (Calif.) Presbyterian Church provides the background to favorite carols and a spiffy "Advent Calendar" here.
