Hymn/Song Information

A child is born the birth proclaim A son




A child is born,—the birth proclaim,
A son is given,—declare his name;
Messiah, from the fall foretold,
The Deity in human mould;
—That mould from which,
God’s image lost
In Eden at so dire a cost,
The new creation shall restore,
And guilt efface its lines no more.


Hail! To his rising from afar,
He is the bright and morning star;
His healing beams, ye nations, bless,
He is the Sun of Righteousness.
To save his people from their sins,
Jesus his suffering life begins;
Ere long as Christ our sacrifice,
The Holy and the Just One dies.


Again his glorious name record,
As David’s Son and David’s Lord;
He mounts the mediatorial throne,
To claim earth’s kingdoms
for his own:
Him every eye again shall see
Descend in power and majesty,
His ransomed in the clouds to meet,
And put all foes beneath his feet.
