High Word of God Who once didst come




High Word of God,
Who once didst come,
Leaving Thy Father
and Thy home,
To succor by Thy birth our kind,
When, towards Thy advent,
time declined,


Pour light upon us from above,
And fire our hearts
with Thy strong love,
That, as we hear
Thy Gospel read,
All fond desires
may flee in dread;


That when Thou comest
from the skies,
Great Judge, to open
Thine assize,
To give each hidden sin its smart,
And crown as kings
the pure in heart,


We be not set at Thy left hand,
Where sentence due
would bid us stand,
But with the saints
Thy face may see,
Forever wholly loving Thee.


Praise to the Father and the Son,
Through all the ages as they run;
And to the holy Paraclete
Be praise with Them
and worship meet.
