Hark! The Herald Angels Sing sheet music with lyrics

The history of the creation of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing is an interesting one that involves the work of four men. The original text of the carol was written in 1739 by Charles Wesley, brother of John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Church. Those lyrics were eventually altered by George Whitfield, an English Anglican preacher. More than one hundred years later in 1855, William Cummings arranged the lyrics to a melody composed by Felix Mendelssohn, to create the version of Hark! The Herald Angels Sing that we know today.
