Representative Text

1 We hail Thee, blessed Saviour,
Who left Thy lofty throne;
And to the earth descended,
With mankind made Thy home;
O Christ what degradation,
To take on human birth,
That from the chains of Satan
Thou mightst release the earth.

Sing! sing! sing! sing!
While the glad bells ring,
Hymns of praise unto our heav’nly King;
Sing! sing! sing! sing!
While the glad bells ring,
To Him whose birth redeem’d the earth,
Your sweetest anthems sing.

2 In Bethlehem the blessed,
Upon the Virgin’s breast,
Thou Prince of earth and heaven,
A little child did reset;
That tender form so helpless,
Her gentle arms entwine,
Had strength to save, far greater,
Than earthly pow’r combin’d. [Refrain]

3 What costly gem, or treasure,
Can we lay at Thy feet?
What words of love, or praises,
Our trembling lips repeat;
For this great love Thou beareth,
On sinful man bestow;
And leave Thy home in heaven,
To live with us below. [Refrain]
