1 How strange the tidings, how profound!
That God a man should be;
In servant's form the Lord was found,
To make us S\servants free.
2 Our father lov'd us worms so well,
He put our nature on,
And thus became Immanuel,
The Father and the Son.
3 He finish'd what his love began,
For Adam's ruin'd race;
We see the God shine thro' the man,
In dear Imman'el's face.
4 This sacred unity maintains
Our constant peace with God:
Our sins aton'd for by his pains,
His sorrow and his blood.Source: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs: selected and original, designed for the use of the Church Universal in public and private devotion #CVI
