Published in 2 hymnals
1 All praise to you, eternal God!
Now clothed in human flesh and blood,
You took a manger for your throne
While worlds on worlds are yours alone. Alleluia!
2 Once did the skies before you bow;
A virgin's arms contain you now
While angels, who in you rejoice,
Now listen for your infant voice. Alleluia!
3 O little Child, you were our guest
That weary ones in you might rest;
Forlorn and lowly was your birth
That we might rise to heav'n from earth. Alleluia!
4 You came to us in darkest night
To make us children of the light;
Like angels in the realms divine
Around your throne we, too, will shine. Alleluia!
5 All this your love for us has done;
By this our love for you is won;
For this our joyful songs we raise
And shout our thanks in ceaseless praise. Alleluia!
