1 Carol we the blessing
Of th’Incarnate Word;
Carol we. Confessing
Our arisen Lord.
Carol we, carol we,
Jesus Christ came down to be
Surety on th’accursed tree,
For the sins of men.

2 Mourn we at the scorning
Shower’d upon His head,
While His brow adorning,
Mocking words they said.
Majesty, Divinity,
Clothed with Humanity,
Perfect in humility,
For the sins of men.

3 Carol we the story
Of His dying love;
Carol we the glory
He now shares above.
Carol we, carol we,
Captive led captivity;
Jesus Christ now lives to be
Th’Advocate for men.

4 Carol we the whole earth
Sav’d from sinfulness;
Carol we the new birth
Unto righteousness.
Carol we, carol we,
Th’ever blessed Trinity,
Three in One, and One in Three;
God forevermore.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
