There shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and His rest shall be glorious.@Isaiah 11:10

Let our gladness have no end,
Hallelujah!
For to earth did Christ descend.
Hallelujah!

On this day God gave us
Christ, His Son, to save us;
Christ, His Son, to save us.

See, the loveliest blooming rose,
Hallelujah!
From the branch of Jesse grows.
Hallelujah!

Into flesh is made the Word.
Hallelujah!
He, our refuge and our Lord.
Hallelujah!
