1 Rejoice, our nature Christ assumes;
Born of a virgin, lo, He comes,
As a Messiah fore-ordained.
Adore and wonder, every land!
2 He left His bright, His glorious throne;
He bowed the heavens, to earth came down,
And thus His wondrous race began,
As God with God and Man with man.
3 Behold, a great, a heavenly light,
From Bethlehem’s manger shining bright,
Around those who in darkness dwell,
The night of evil to dispel.
