1 Savior of the nations, come;
Show the glory of the Son!
Marvel now, O heaven and earth,
That our Lord chose such a birth.
2 Not by human flesh and blood,
By the Spirit of our God
Was the word of God made flesh--
Woman's offspring, pure and fresh.
3 Wondrous birth! O wondrous child
Of the Virgin undefiled!
Mighty God and man in one,
Eager now his race to run!
4 God Creator is his source,
Back to God he runs his course,
Down to death and hell descends,
God's high throne he reascends.
5 Now your lowly manger bright
Hallows night with newborn light;
Let no night this light subdue,
Let our faith shine ever new.
