Let all together praise our God, upon

Representative Text

1 Let all together praise our God
Upon his lofty throne,
For he uncloses heaven today
And gives to us his Son,
And gives to us his Son.

2 He lays aside his majesty
And seems as nothing worth,
And takes on him a servant's form,
Who made the heaven and earth,
Who made the heaven and earth.

3 Behold the wonderful exchange
Our Lord with us does make!
Lo, he assumes our flesh and blood,
And we of heaven partake,
And we of heaven partake.

4 The glorious gates of paradise
The angel guards no more;
This day again those gates unfold.
With praise our God adore,
With praise our God adore!
