1. Away with our fears!
The Godhead appears
In Christ reconciled
The Father of mercies in Jesus the child.

2. He comes from above,
In manifest love,
Desire of our eyes,
The meek Lamb of God, in a manger He lies.

3. Immanuel’s birth
What triumph on earth!
Yet could it afford
No better a place for its heavenly Lord?

4. The Ancient of Days
Redeems a lost race:
His glory comes down
Self-humbled to carry us up to a crown.

5. Made flesh for our sake,
That we might partake
The nature divine,
Again in His image, His holiness shine.

6. A heavenly birth,
Experience on earth,
And rise to His throne,
And life with our Jesus eternally one.

7. Then let us believe,
And gladly receive
The tidings they bring
Who publish to sinners their Savior and king.

8. And while we are here,
Our King shall appear,
His Spirit impart,
And form His full image of love in our heart.
