Representative Text

1 Down from the glory
Came God’s Son in lowly grace,
To tell love’s story,
And redeem the race.
O the glorious mystery,
Of the Babe of Bethlehem;
Great event of hist’ry,
God becoming Man!

Jesus, Lord Jesus,
Thou hast tasted death for me;
Jesus, Lord Jesus,
Now I yield to Thee.

2 Tasting life’s sorrow,
Onward Thou didst wend Thy way,
Knowing the morrow
That before Thee lay;
From the cross not shrinking,
Thou the cup of wrath didst take;
By its contents drinking,
Didst atonement make. [Chorus]

3 In resurrection,
Thou ascended, Lord, on high;
Changeless perfection,
Throned beyond the sky;
There are Priest maintaining
All Thy people here below,
Thy strong arm sustaining
Them against the foe. [Chorus]

4 Soon in descending,
Thou Thy ransomed Bride shalt greet,
All saints attending,
In the air shall meet;
Then the kingdom glorious,
Thou shall reign upon Thy throne,
Evermore victorious,
Worthy One alone. [Chorus]
