Is the classic Christmas hymn a Christological heresy because of the following line, "Veiled in flesh the Godhead see,"? This line--'VEILED in flesh'--seems to undermine the Divinity of Jesus' human nature. It makes it appear as if God only wore human flesh/looked like a human, but that He wasn't truly human. What's the name of this heresy again?

I think the heresy you are thinking of is docetism, which taught that Christ only seemed to be human; I believe certain forms of Gnosticism taught this also.

Although the line you quote could be taken that way if considered in isolation, I think that if you consider the following lines along with it, you get a different impression.  In the version I learned, after "Veiled in flesh the Godhead see" comes:

"Hail the incarnate deity,
Pleased as man with men to dwell,
Jesus our Immanuel."

There is a clear indication that Jesus is God "incarnate", and that He is a man.  So, whatever one may think of Christmas carols, or western hymns in general, I think we can absolve this particular carol of the docetist heresy.

Ah yes, the old heresy of being written by Western Christians, a particularly pernicious heresy prevalent since the time of Augustine, the first Western Christian who dared to write extensively.

It is not necessarily heretical, but one could misconstrue it as Doceticism if they really wanted to.

"[Christ] who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross." -Phillipians 2:6-8

Here, St. Paul says that Christ appeared as a man, but it is quite clear in context what he means by "appeared."

A good number of traditional western Christmas carols, especially those which pre-date the Reformation, are completely compatible with Orthodox teaching. O Come All Ye Faithful and Hark the Herald Angels Sing are good examples. They shouldn't be sung during Orthodox services as a liturgical replacement for hymns appointed for those services, but, otherwise, if there's no heresy or distortion in a carol, why not enjoy them?  Smiley

This hymn was written by Charles Wesley, brother of John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement. I have never heard anyone question their understanding of the Incarnation. I think you're taking a single word out of context here and making too much of it. It's a bit poetic, that's all.

The only problematic Christmas carol I can think of is that one that identifies the star of Bethlehem, which tradition says was an appearance of the Christ Child in the heavens (in other words, it looked like a baby) with a comet, of all things. It has those lines, "Do you see what I see? A star, a star dancing in the night with a tail as big as a kite, with a tail as big as a kite."

While not heretical, it is clearly contrary to Orthodox Tradition. The song came out about a month before I was born.

I don't see any heresy in "veiled in flesh the Godhead see," but I think that if a person looks under every rock for heresy, they are probably distracted from their divine calling.

There is nothing at all in the Nativity and pre-Nativity hymnography which describes the star which led the Magi to Bethlehem as looking like a child or babe. Any such imagery, even if written of by a saint, can only be regarded as speculation, or, perhaps, a mistranslation from the original language, or a misunderstanding of what the saint actually wrote.

Do you mean "Herald Angels"?

I think the heresy you are thinking of is docetism, which taught that Christ only seemed to be human; I believe certain forms of Gnosticism taught this also.

Although the line you quote could be taken that way if considered in isolation, I think that if you consider the following lines along with it, you get a different impression.  In the version I learned, after "Veiled in flesh the Godhead see" comes:

"Hail the incarnate deity,
Pleased as man with men to dwell,
Jesus our Immanuel."

There is a clear indication that Jesus is God "incarnate", and that He is a man.  So, whatever one may think of Christmas carols, or western hymns in general, I think we can absolve this particular carol of the docetist heresy.

You bring up a good point.  I honestly never thought of that.
