10696. Hark! Heard Ye Not The Ancient Seer?

1 Hark! heard ye not the ancient seer,
While thus the wondrous promise ran?
A virgin shall conceive, and bear
A son, Immanuel, God with man!

2 Hark! hear ye not the angel bring
His answering message from the sky?
Hail, virgin blest, from whom shall spring
A son, the Son of God most high!

3 O Thou, who didst not scorn below,
The Son of Man, with us to dwell,
And us Thy Father’s glory show,
The Son of God, Immanuel.

4 Thou, for our sake incarnate made,
Thy Godhead, lo! with faith we own,
Or in a servant’s form arrayed,
Or partner of Thy Father’s throne.

5 O Jesus, glory be to Thee,
Returned to Thy celestial rest,
Throned with Thy Father’s majesty,
In union with the Spirit blest.
