Now The Long Expected Savior

Representative Text

1 Now the long expected Savior,
He a veil of flesh assumes,
To destroy the powers of darkness,
Lo! our dear Emmanuel comes,
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hail the newborn Son of Man.

2 Now glad news of our salvation,
Angels to the shepherds bring,
Now we view the Father’s glory,
Shining in the infant King:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hail the newborn Son of Man.

3 Glory be to God Jehovah,
Who so loved our fallen race;
Sent His Son down from His bosom,
We admire the wondrous grace:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hail the newborn Son of Man.

4 He and only He is worthy
To receive all praise from men!
He who left His ancient glory,
That we might be born again:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hail the newborn Son of Man.

5 We will worship and adore Him,
He who put our nature on:
Jesus shall have all the glory,
From the church of God’s firstborn:
Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hail the newborn Son of Man.
