Hymn/Song Information

From east to west from shore to shore




From east to west,
from shore to shore,
Let every heart awake and sing
The holy Child Whom Mary bore,
The Christ, the everlasting King.


Behold, the world’s Creator wears
The form and fashion of a slave;
Our very flesh our Maker shares,
His fallen creature, man, to save.


For this how wondrously
He wrought!
A maiden, in her lowly place,
Became, in ways beyond
all thought,
The chosen vessel of His grace.


She bowed her to
the angel’s word
Declaring what the Father willed,
And suddenly the promised Lord
That pure and hallowed
temple filled.


He shrank not from
the oxen’s stall,
He lay within the manger bed,
And He whose bounty feedeth all
At Mary’s breast Himself was fed.


And while the angels in the sky
Sang praise above the silent field,
To shepherds poor
the Lord Most High,
The one great Shepherd,
was revealed.


All glory for this blessèd morn
To God the Father ever be;
All praise to Thee, O virgin born,
All praise, O Holy Ghost, to Thee.


---Alternative verses---


To shepherds,
poor the Lord most high,
Great Shepherd, was revealed;
While angel-choirs sang joyously
Above the midnight field.
