All Praise to Jesus

Representative Text

1 All praise to Jesus' hallowed name,
Who of virgin pure became
True man for us! the angels sing,
As the glad news to earth they bring,
Kyrie Eleis!

2 The heavenly Father's only Son
For a manger leaves His throne;
Disguised in our poor flesh and blood
Is now the everlasting Good.
Kyrie Eleis!

3 He whom the world could not inclose
Doth in Mary's lap repose;
He is become an infant small,
Who by His might upholdeth all.
Kyrie Eleis!

4 Th'eternal Light, come down from heaven,
Hath to us new sunshine given;
It shineth in the midst or night,
And maketh us the sons of light.
Kyrie Eleis!

5 The Father's Son, God ever blest,
In the world become a guest;
He leads us from this vale of tears,
And makes us in His kingdom heirs.
Kyrie Eleis!

6 He came to earth despised and poor,
Man to pity and restore,
And make us rich in heaven above,
Alike with angels through His love.
Kyrie Eleis!

7 All this He did, that He might prove
To us sinners His great love;
For this let Christendom adore
And praise His name forevermore.
Kyrie Eleis!
