God is born, great powers tremble

Full Text

1. God is born, great powers tremble,
Lord of Heaven lies forsaken.
Fire is frozen, splendor darkens,
feeble nature God has taken.
Lowly born, yet Lord to Praises,
Mortal yet the King of Ages.
Now indeed the Word made Flesh has
come on earth to dwell among us.

2. Where, oh heaven, is thy splendor,
dimmed is now your starry azure.
Earth now holds in lowly manger,
the divine unfathomed Treasure!
God e'en now in pain does glory
as unfolds Redemption's story.
Now indeed the Word made Flesh has
come on earth to dwell among us.

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
