1 Behold, the Prince of Peace,
The chosen of the Lord,
God’s well-beloved Son, fulfils
The sure prophetic Word.
2 No royal pomp adorns
This King of righteousness:
Meekness and patience, truth and love,
Compose His princely dress.
3 Jesus, Thou light of men!
Thy doctrine life imparts.
O may we feel its quickening power
To warm and glad our hearts!
4 Cheered by Thy beams, our souls
Shall run the heavenly way.
The path which Thou hast marked and trod
Shall lead to endless day.
