He Became Incarnate

Full Text

Prelude
He became incarnate, Christ the King of glory,
He became incarnate

1. Shepherds were keeping their nightly watch on Bethlem’s plain,
"Fear not, O brothers," the angel addressed them,
Wonderful brightness around them shone so marv’lously.
"Joy I proclaim through the birth of the Savior."

Refrain
He became incarnate, Christ the King of glory,
He became incarnate

2. "This sign I’ll show you by which you’ll find the Lord of all."
Suddenly heavenly hosts sang forth praises.
"In David’s city you’ll find Him in a lowly stall."
"Glory to God who gives peace on earth good will." [Refrain]

Transliterated Indian lyrics:
Lína awatárá soí jagaraijá
Lína awatárá.

Desha Yahúdamen
Kitane gareriye
Kheton men jo saba basa rarayá.
