1. Unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is giv’n,
Child the mark of human scorn;
Son—the Heir of earth and Heav’n;
Son of God, a human child;
God with us, His wondrous name;
Holy, harmless, undefiled,
yet ordained to death and shame.

2. Oh, that by a worthy song
we might echo back the strain,
Erst that greeted, loud and long,
Bethlehem’s astonished plain!
Might the manger cradled king
with the shepherd watch behold,
And with star-led sages bring
frankincense, and myrrh and gold!

3. Great Redeemer, Thou hast died;
Thou hast wrought the work sublime;
And the words have echoed wide
to the farthest bounds of time—
It is finished!—finished
long is Thy great redemption plan;
And we bless Thee in our song,
Lord of angels, Son of Man!

4. Wonderful Thy name we call;
Counselor, to Thee we bow;
Mighty God, the Lord of all,
Father everlasting Thou,
Prince of Peace—Thy steadfast throne
strong in judgment stands for aye;
Every land Thy might shall own,
all Thy scepter shall obey.
