God of GOD,
Light of Light,
come, let us adore Him,
Sing, choirs of Angels,
Sing in exultation,
Glory to GOD
come, let us adore Him,
Yea, LORD, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning :
Word of the FATHER
O come, let us adore Him,
“The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." 19. JESU, Redeemer of the world!
Who in the earliest dawn of Light
In Whom the FATHER's face we see,
This day throughout the world to Thee.
That in the Virgin's sacred womb
Didst our mortality assume.
This ever-blest recurring day,
Its witness bears that all alone
To save the world Thou camest down.
And earth and Heav'n, glad welcome sing,
And brought on earth salvation's King.
In Thy Own fount of Blood divine,
On this blest natal day of Thine.
Immortal glory be to Thee,
And Holy Ghost eternally.
“He took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of man."
20. FROM far sunrise at early morn
To earth's remotest ring,
We carol CHRIST our King.
In servile guise arrayed,
And save the souls He made.
In manger, lo, He lies ;
Who stills creation's cries.
The Angels round Him sing,
Earth's Shepherd, LORD, and King.
JESU, the Virgin-Mother's Son,
To Thee all glory be,
Through all eternity.
“God sent forth His Son, made of a woman,
Let all the Angels of God worship Him." 21. CEASE, weary mortals, cease to sigh,
For God hath heard you from on high;
, a manger rudely piled,
O holy Babe, Thy love inspire;
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men." 22. HARK! the herald Angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!
God and sinners reconcil'd!
ye nations rise,
CHRIST is born in Bethlehem !
CHRIST the everlasting LORD,
Offspring of a Virgin's womb!
Hail, Incarnate Deity;
JESUS our Immanuel here.
Hail the Sun of Righteousness !
Ris'n with healing in His wings.
Born that men no more may
Born to give them second birth!
“Unto you is born this day a SAVIOUR, which is CHRIST the LORD.”
23. WHILE shepherds watch'd their flocks by
And glory shone around.
Had seized their troubled mind ;)
To you and all mankind.
Is born, of David's line,
And this shall be the sign :
To human view display'd,
And in a manger laid.”
Appear'd a shining throng
Address'd their joyful song:
And to the earth be peace;
Begin, and never cease.".
9. Stephen's Day.
" And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying LORD Jesus, receive my spirit.” 24. Of Thy true soldiers, mighty LORD,
The portion, crown, and great reward,
