1 Let the earth exalt the Lord,
Who in truth has kept His word:
For the sinners' truest Friend
God from heaven now doth send.
2 What the prophets had foretold,
What delighted men of old,
What their hearts with rapture thrilled
Is in glory here fulfilled.
3 Abram's Shield and great Reward,
He whom Jacob owned as Lord,
Shiloh, God and Virgin-born,
Comes to save a world forlorn.
4 Welcome, Savior, kind and true,
I to Thee my prayer renew:
For Thyself prepare a way
And within my heart hold sway.
5 King of glory, enter in,
In my heart Thy rule begin:
Make it, as Thou gladly wilt,
Pure from every sin and guilt.
6 Prince of life, the day draws near
When as Judge Thou wilt appear:
May I then stand at Thy side
As a sinner justified.
