Praise God the Lord ye sons of men




Praise God the Lord, ye sons of men,
Before His highest throne;
Today He opens Heavín again
|:And gives us His own Son.:|


He leaves His heavínly
Fatherís throne
Is born an Infant small,
And in a manger, poor and lone,
|:Lies in a humble stall.:|


He veils in flesh His power divine
A servantís form to take;
In want and lowliness must pine
|:Who Heavín and earth did make.:|


He nestles at His motherís breast,
Receives her tender care,
Whom angels hail with joy most blest,
|:King Davidís royal Heir.:|


íTis He who in these latter days
From Judahís tribe should come,
By Whom the Father would upraise
|:The Church, His Christendom.:|


A wondrous change
which He does make!
He takes our flesh and blood,
And He conceals for sinnersí sake
|:His majesty of God.:|


He serves that I a lord may be;
A great exchange indeed!
Could Jesusí love do more for me
|:To help me in my need?:|


He opens us again the door
Of paradise today;
The angel guards the gate no more
|:To God our thanks we pay.:|
