Sing, O Sing, This Blessed Morn

Representative Text

1. Sing, O sing, this blessèd morn,
unto us a Child is born,
unto us a Son is given,
God Himself comes down from heaven.

Sing, O sing, this blessèd morn,
Jesus Christ today is born.

2 God from God, and Light from Light,
comes with mercies infinite,
from high heaven he comes to earth,
one with us in human birth. (Refrain)

3 God with us, Emmanuel,
deigns forever now to dwell;
he on Adam’s fallen race
sheds the fullness of his grace. (Refrain)

4 God comes down that we may rise,
lifted by him to the skies;
Christ is born for us that we
born again in him may be. (Refrain)

5 O renew us, Lord, we pray,
with thy Spirit day by day,
that we ever one may be
with the Father and with thee. (Refrain)
