GABRIEL'S MESSAGE




Gabriel’s message does away
Satan’s curse and Satan’s sway;
This was wrought by Christmas Day:
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!


He that comes despised shall reign;
He that cannot die, be slain;
Death by death its death shall gain:
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!


Like its like shall overthrow:
By a Tree prevailed the foe;
From a Tree shall healing grow:
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!


Man was lost a garden in;
In a garden man shall win;
Woman’s faith end woman’s sin:
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!


Weakness shall the strong confound;
By the hands, in babe-clothes wound,
Adam’s sin shall be unbound;
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!


By the sword that was his own
By that sword, and that alone;
Shall Goliath be o’erthrown;
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!


Art by art shall be assailed;
To the cross shall Life be nailed;
From the grave shall hope be hailed;
Therefore sing—Glory to the Infant King!
