Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Hark! a glad exulting throng;
Hark! the loud hosannas ring;
Glad hosannas loud and long
Greet Messiah triumphing.

2 He of whom the prophets won
Mystic visions faint and dim,
Comes, th’All-Father’s only Son,
And redemption comes with Him.

3 Bore the Word sin’s curse and shame,
Leaving Heav’n for sin’s domain;
Wore the Word our fleshly frame,
By His death, death’s king was slain.

4 Once of earthly Mother born
Ever of the Father, He;
Twain the natures He has worn,
One His perfect deity.

5 Lo! the Godhead come to earth,
Perfect man, as all might see,
That reborn in God’s new birth
Might the fallen manhood be.

6 Praise we Him with joyful voice,
Our new birth His triumph sealed;
In the day let all rejoice
Which of old His birth revealed.

7 Him with holiest worship praise
In His solemn Advent-tide;
Holiest rites for holiest days
By the Godhead glorified.

8 So, when earth His terrors shake,
He shall come our faith to bless;
Saved, for that first Advent’s sake,
By His glorious lowliness.
