1 To us a child of royal birth,
heir of the promises, is given;
the invisible appears on earth,
the son of man, the God of heaven.
2 A saviour born, in love supreme
he comes our fallen souls to raise;
he comes his people to redeem
with all the fulness of his grace.
3 The Christ by raptured seers foretold,
filled with the eternal Spirit’s power,
Prophet, and Priest, and King behold,
the Lord of all the worlds adore.
4 The Lord of hosts, the God most high,
who quits his throne on earth to live,
we welcome now with holy joy,
with faith into our hearts receive.
