        The Maker of the sun and moon,
        the Maker of our earth,
        lo! late in time, a fairer boon,
        himself is brought to birth!


        How blest was all creation then,
        when God so gave increase;
        and Christ, to heal the hearts of men,
        brought righteousness and peace!


        No star in all the heights of heaven
        but burned to see him go;
        yet unto earth alone was given
        his human form to know.


        His human form, by man denied,
        took death for human sin:
        his endless love, through faith descried,
        still lives the world to win.


        O perfect Love, outpassing sight,
        O Light beyond our ken,
        come down through all the world tonight,
        and heal the hearts of men!
