1 To Christ the Lord! The incarnate Word!
Who left for us His Father’s throne,
Put off His crown, to earth came down,
And lived amongst us as our own,
The praises of our lives belong;
Accept, O Lord, both lives and song.

2 To Him who lay, as on this day,
Low in His manger bed on earth;
The holy Child who, undefiled,
Was born to give us second birth;
The praises of our lives belong;
Accept, O Lord, both lives and song.

3 His name be blest, who, from His rest,
Came down to suffer for us here,
Our sins to bear, our griefs to share,
To shed, and dry the mourner’s tear;
The praises of our lives belong;
Accept, O Lord, both lives and song.

4 Glory and love to God above
Be ever in the highest given,
Good will to men below, and then
Peace, endless peace, ’twixt earth and Heav’n;
The praises of our lives belong;
Accept, O Lord, both lives and song.
