Representative Text

1 Jesus th'eternal Son of God,
Whom Seraphim obey,
The bosom of the Father leaves,
And enters human clay:

2 Into our sinful world he comes
The messenger of grace,
And on the bloody tree expires
A victim in our place.

3 Transgressors of the deepest stain
In him salvation find;
His blood removes the foulest guilt,
His spirit heals the mind.

4 Our Jesus saves from sin and hell,
His words are true and sure,
And on this rock, our faith may rest:
Immoveably secure.

5 O let these tidings be receiv'd,
With universal joy,
And let the high angelic praise
Our tuneful pow'rs employ!

6 "Glory to God, who gave his Son,
"To bear our shame and pain:
"Hence peace on earth, and grace to men,
"In endless blessings reign."
