Hark the Herald Angels Sing Verse 4

Hark the Herald Angels Sing Verse 4

My favorite verse of Charles Wesley’s hymn ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ is here below. This fourth verse (technically is a combination of half of the original 4th and half of the original 5th that Whitefield combined together) is to beautiful in how it describes Christ being the New Adam and bringing in the New Creation:

Come, Desire of nations, come,
Fix in us Thy humble home;
Rise, the woman’s conqu’ring Seed,
Bruise in us the serpent’s head.
Adam’s likeness, now efface,
Stamp Thine image in its place:
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in Thy love.
