Come Thou Saviour of our race Choicest




Come, Thou Savior of our race,
Choicest Gift of heav’nly grace!
O Thou blessèd virgin’s Son,
|: Be Thy race on earth begun. :|


Not of mortal blood or birth,
He descends from Heaven to earth;
By the Holy Ghost conceived,
|: God and man by us believed. :|


Wondrous birth! O wondrous Child
Of the virgin undefiled!
Though by all the world disowned,
|: Still to be in Heaven enthroned :|


From the Father forth He came,
And returneth to the same;
Captive leading death and hell—
|: High the song of triumph swell! :|


Equal to the Father now,
Though to dust Thou once didst bow,
Boundless shall Thy kingdom be;
|: When shall we its glories see? :|


Brightly doth Thy manger shine!
Glorious in its light divine:
Let not sin o’ercloud this light,
|: Ever be our faith thus bright. :|
