Nowisborn an infant: the virgin Mary, That Godassum'd our flesh and blood
O wonder ever new!
Lord, who is like to thee! 2 He who prepar'd forev'ry birda nest
That thou, vile sinners to restore,
Hąst deign'd a man to be.

SINNERS, with adoration
Receive this wondrous Child, 'Twas that he might purchase life and
Who came and brought salvation, salvation,
Th' eternal Father styl’d:
Behold him with our nature drest,
Divested of his glory,
In his own world a guest. 4 O Jesus Christ, thou only holy child,
2 With his blest incarnation How canst thou show such love to sin
His glorious work began, ners spoild? But since thou thus lovest, we now
A needful preparation adore thee,
For his whole future plan;
Had not his body been prepard, We humbly praise thy name and bow before thee,
He never could have suffer'd,
Nor we his nature shar'd. 5 Thy sacred' meritorious infancy 3 Behold! laid in a manger, Our crown and everlasting glory be!
The Ancient of all days; From world, sin and Satan, keep us
Upon this heav'nly Stranger estranged,
With awe and rev'rence gaze; Till we shall once around thy throne
He, who the world's foundation laid be ranged
Must now be fed and nourish'd
By creatures whom he made.
4 Though to his boundless mercy ye redeemed of the Lord,
No limits can be set, Your grateful tribute bring,
Yet without controversy
The mystery is great ;
Angels into its depths can't pry,
'Tis great, immense, stupendous i (Faith will point out the road)
Jehovah, born to die!
