Representative Text

1 Lamb, whose blood for all men streamed,
Light, that shone ere morning beamed,
God and God’s eternal Son,
Ever with the Father one;

2 Splendor of the Father’s light,
Star of hope for ever bright,
Hearken to the prayers that flow
From Thy servants here below.

3 Lord, remember that in love
Thou didst leave Thy throne above,
Man’s frail nature to assume
In the holy virgin’s womb.

4 Now Thy Church, each circling year,
Celebrates that love so dear;
Love that brought Thee here alone,
For the guilty to atone.

5 Let not earth alone rejoice,
Seas and skies unite their voice
In a new song, to the morn
When the Lord of life was born.

6 Ransomed by the holy tide
Shed from Thy most precious side,
Joyful let us hail the morn
When the Lord of life was born.

7 Virgin-born, to Thee be praise,
Now and through eternal days;
Father, equal praise to Thee,
With the Spirit, ever be.

Tune

YARBROUGH

According to the Handbook to the Baptist Hymnal (1992), Yarbrough "has been attributed to William B. Bradbury, but there is no evidence for this. Its earliest publication seems to have been in New Life (Nashville, 1880) with the arrangement credited to Rigdon M. McIntosh." (p.239)
