108. Now yield we thanks and praise to Christ

1. Now yield we thanks and praise
to Christ enthroned in glory,
and on this day of days
tell out redemption’s story,
who truly have believed
that on this blessèd morn,
in holiness conceived,
the Son of God was born.

2. What tribute shall we pay
to him who came in weakness,
and in a manger lay
to teach His people meekness?
Let every house be bright;
let praises never cease;
with mercies infinite
our Christ hath brought us peace.
