518. God is born, great powers tremble

1. God is born, great powers tremble,
Lord of Heaven lies forsaken.
Fire is frozen, splendor darkens,
feeble nature God has taken.
Lowly born, yet Lord to Praises,
Mortal yet the King of Ages.
Now indeed the Word made Flesh has
come on earth to dwell among us.

2. Where, oh heaven, is thy splendor,
dimmed is now your starry azure.
Earth now holds in lowly manger,
the divine unfathomed Treasure!
God e'en now in pain does glory
as unfolds Redemption's story.
Now indeed the Word made Flesh has
come on earth to dwell among us.
