Representative Text

1 Let all the nations of the earth
Sing of the great Redeemer's birth!
That once despised man:
O how immense the mystery;
The Father of eternity
Contracted to a span.

2 The fallen sons of men he took,
As members written in his book,
And did our state assume,
That we with him, from sin set free,
Pure, holy, undefil'd might be,
And thus to glory come.

3 Lo! then a man was born again,
Exempt from Adam's dreadful stain,
And fully meet for heav'n:
With him the fallen sons of earth
Are born of God, this their new birth,
Which grace to them has giv'n.

4 With Angel hosts we join to sing
The Praises of our new born King,
Our God incarnate bless,
Whose holy, strange, mysterious birth,
Brought heav'nly joys to sons of earth,
With peace and righteousness.
