Hymn/Song Information

All praise to Thee Eternal Lord Clothed in a garb




All praise to Thee, Eternal Lord,
Clothed in a garb of flesh and blood;
Choosing a manger for Thy throne,
While worlds on worlds are Thine alone.


Once did the skies before Thee bow;
A virginís arms contain Thee now,
While angels, who in Thee rejoice,
Now listen for Thine infant voice.


A little Child, Thou art our Guest,
That weary ones in Thee may rest;
Forlorn and lowly is Thy birth;
That we may rise to heaven from earth.


Thou comest in the darksome night
To make us children of the light;
To make us, in the realms divine,
Like Thine own angels round Thee shine.


All this for us Thy love hath done;
By this to Thee our love is won;
For this we tune our cheerful lays,
And sing our thanks in ceaseless praise.


---Alternative verses---


Once did the skies before Thee bow;
A virginís arms contain Thee now,†
Angels, who did in Thee rejoice,†
Now listen for Thine infant voice.†
