1 The Son of God his glory hides
to dwell with parents poor;
and he who made the heavens abides
in dwelling-place obscure.
2 Those mighty hands that stay the sky
no earthly toil refuse;
and he who set the stars on high
an humble trade pursues.
3 He in whose sight the angels stand,
at whose behest they fly,
now yields himself to man's command,
and lays his glory by.
4 For this thy lowliness revealed,
Jesu, we thee adore,
and praise to God the Father yield
and Spirit evermore.
