1 We praise, O Christ, your holy name
Truly human child you came,
From virgin born; this word is true.
Your angels are rejoicing, too.
2 Now in the manger one may see
God's Son from eternity,
The Gift from God's eternal throne
Here clothed in our poor flesh and bone.
3 The Virgin Mother lulls to sleep
Him who rules the cosmic deep;
This Infant is the Lord of day,
Whom all the turning world obey.
4 The Light Eternal, breaking through,
Made the world to gleam anew;
His beams have pierced the core of night,
He makes us children of the light,
5 The Prince, God's very Son, came here,
Guest among the sons of fear.
His banner leads us out of woe,
And to his royal hall we go.
6 To earth he came so poor to bring
Great compassion as our King
That rich in glory we might stand
With angels in the heavenly land.
7 Such grace toward us now fills with light
Length and breadth and depth and height!
O endless ages, raise your voice;
O Christendom, rejoice, rejoice!
