1 Du være lovet, Jesus Krist,
At Menneske du vorden est,
Og kommer som vor Broder kjær,
Thi glæder sig al Himlens Hær!
Halleluja!

2 Gud Faders Søn af Evighed
Er kommen fattig til os ned;
I vores arme Kjød og Blod
Sig klæder Gud vor Herre god.
Halleluja!

3 Han, som al Verden er for trang,
Her ligger han paa Moders Fang
Som En af vore kjære Smaa,
Den Gud, af hvem vi Ophold faa.
Halleluja!

4 Nu rinder op med hillig Glans
Udover Verden Lyset hans,
Og skinner in i Natten saa,
At Lysets Børn vi blive maa.
Halleluja!

5 Ja han, som var Guds Hjerte næst,
Til Jorden kom, en fremmed Gjæst,
Og fører os fra Dødens Dal
Med sig til Gud i Himlens Sal.
Halleluja1

6 Han er paa Jorden kommen arm,
At du skal hvile ved hans Barm,
Og blive baade glad og rig,
Hans kjære, søde Engle lig.
Halleluja!

7 Det har han gjort. Vi kan derpaa
Hans store Kjærlighed forstaa.
Hver ˚risten glæde sig herved,
Og takke ham i Evighed!
Halleluja1

Magnus Brostrup Landstad (born 7 October 1802 in Måsøy, Norway and died 8 October 1880 in Kristiania) was a Norwegian minister, psalmist and poet who published the first collection of authentic Norwegian traditional ballads in 1853.
