CHRIST HAS COME




He has come, the Christ of God:
Left for us His glad abode;
Stooping from His throne of bliss
To this darksome wilderness.


He has come, the Prince of Peace:
Come to bid our sorrows cease;
Come to scatter with His light
All the shadows of our night.


He, the mighty King, has come,
Making this poor earth His home:
Come to bear our sinís sad load,
Son of David, Son of God.


He has come, Whose Name of grace
Speaks deliverance to our race:
Left for us His glad abode,
Son of Mary, Son of God.


Unto us a Child is born:
Neíer has earth beheld a morn
Among all the morns of time,
Half so glorious in its prime.


Unto us a Son is given:
He has come from Godís own Heaven,
Bringing with Him from above
Holy peace and holy love.
