12403. All Hail! Bright Morning Star

1 All hail, bright morning star!
The dayspring from afar;
Hail the long expected morn!
Hail the joy of earth and Heav’n!
Unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is giv’n!

Unto us, unto us, unto us a Son is giv’n,
Unto us, unto us a Son is giv’n!

2 Veiled in a form of clay,
Whom angel hosts obey,
God appears on earth to dwell,
Him the hosts of Satan dread;
Christ will save our souls from hell,
He shall bruise the serpent’s head! [Refrain]

3 Hail, Christ is God alone!
For sin He doth atone!
Savior of the human race,
Thee let all our powers confess;
Own Thy power, extol Thy grace,
Shout the Lord our righteousness! [Refrain]
