Representative Text

1 The promised Star appeareth,
The Dayspring from above;
Our souls with light it cheereth,
The light of peace and love.
Christ, of a virgin born,
With His celestial brightness
Hath turned our night to morn.

2 O Lord, how condescending,
How mild Thy coming now!
But soon, the mountains rending,
Thy voice the heav’ns shall bow.
Thou wilt appear again
Upon a throne of glory,
With endless power to reign.

3 Lord, let us now receive Thee
Within the willing heart,
And never may we grieve Thee
Nor tempt Thee to depart.
Thy childlike spirit give
To us, beloved Redeemer,
And still within us live.
