265. Savior of the Nations, Come

1 Savior of the nations, come!
Virgin's Son, make here your home.
Marvel now, both heav'n and earth,
that the Lord chose such a birth.

2 Wondrous birth! O wondrous child
of the Virgin undefiled!
Mighty God and Mary's son,
human and divine in one.

3 Thus on earth the Word appears,
gracing his created spheres;
hence to death and hell descends,
then the heav'nly throne ascends.

4 Come, O Father's saving Son,
who o'er sin the vict'ry won.
Boundless shall your kingdom be;
grant that we its glories see.
