381. Let Our Gladness Have No End

1 Let our gladness have no end, alleluia!
For to earth did Christ descend, alleluia!

On this day God gave us
Christ, His Son, to save us;
Christ, His Son to save us.

2 Prophesied in days of old, alleluia!
God has sent Him as foretold, alleluia! [Refrain]

3 See, the loveliest blooming rose, alleluia!
From the branch of Jesse grows, alleluia! [Refrain]

4 Into flesh is made the Word, alleluia!
He, our refuge and our Lord, alleluia! [Refrain]
