1. As on the night before this blessed morn,
A troop of angels unto shepherds told,
Where in a stable He was lowly born,
Whom nor the earth, nor heav'n of heav'ns can hold.
Thro' Bethlem rung this news at their return;
Yea, angels sung that “God with us” was born:
And they made mirth because we should not mourn.

R. His love therefore, oh! let us all confess,
And to the sons of men his works express.

2. This favour Christ vouchsafed for our sake;
To buy us thrones He in a manger lay;
Our weakness took, that we His strength might take,
And was disrob’d, that He might us array;
Our flesh He wore, our sin to wear away;
Our curse He bore, that we escape it may;
And wept for us that we might sing for aye.

R.
