To us, to us a child is born,
Arise and hail the glorious morn;
Come, let us praise the God of Heav’n,
To us, to us a son is giv’n!
To us, the guilty race of man,
He comes! An infant of a span!
O let us sing His wondrous love,
Which brings salvation from above.
He comes, all potent, to sustain
In government an endless name;
Sinners, rejoice and spread His fame,
In Counsel Wonderful His name.
The mighty God—the Prince of Peace,
Whose kingdom never shall decrease;
The Everlasting Father’s come—
How strange! A servant—from the womb!
With angels let our souls adore
The virgin’s son—The Prince of Power;
Jesus! with praise inspire our tongues,
And then accept our grateful songs.
All praise to God for grace divine!
The hymn let saints and seraphs join;
Let Heaven with hallelujahs ring
While we adore our new-born king.
