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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

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

Let all the nations of the earth

Let all the nations of the earth

Author: John Relly
Published in 3 hymnals

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,
Such that were written in his Book,
Did all our State assume,
That we with him, from Sin set free,
That pure and holy Thing might be,
Born from the Virgin's Womb.

3 Lo! there a Man was born again,
Exempt from Adam's dreadful Stain,
And fully meet for Heav'n:
And here the fallen Sons of Earth
Aee born of God, this their New-birth,
This Grace to them is 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 heavenly Joys to Sons of Earth,
With Peace and Righteousness.
