Representative Text

1. Let angels and archangels sing
The wonderful Immanuel’s name,
Adore with us our new-born king,
And still the joyful news proclaim;
All earth and Heav’n be ever joined
To praise the Savior of mankind.

2. The everlasting God comes down
To sojourn with the sons of men;
Without His majesty or crown,
The great Invisible is seen;
Of all His dazzling glories shorn
The everlasting God is born!

3. Angels, behold that infant’s face,
With rapturous awe the Godhead own;
’Tis all your heav’n on Him to gaze,
And cast your crowns before His throne;
Though now He on His footstool lies,
Ye know He built both earth and skies.

4. By Him into existence brought,
Ye sang the all-creating Word;
Ye heard Him call our world from naught;
Again, in honor of your Lord,
Ye morning-stars your hymns employ,
And shout, ye sons of God, for joy.
