Hymn/Song Information

Come Thou Redeemer of the earth And




Come, Thou Redeemer of the earth,
And manifest Thy virgin birth:
Let every age adoring fall;
Such birth befits the God of all.


Begotten of no human will,
But of the Spirit, Thou art still
The Word of God in flesh arrayed,
The Saviour, now to man displayed.


The virgin womb that burden gained
With virgin honor all unstained;
The banners there of virtue glow;
God in His temple dwells below.


Forth from His chamber goeth He,
That royal home of purity,
A giant in twofold substance one,
Rejoicing now His course to run.


From God the Father He proceeds,
To God the Father back He speeds;
Runs out his course to death and hell,
Returns on Godís high throne to dwell.


O equal to the Father, Thou!
Gird on Thy fleshly mantle now;
The weakness of our mortal state
With deathless might invigorate.


Thy cradle here shall glitter bright,
And darkness glow with new-born light,
No more shall night extinguish day,
Where love's bright beams their power display.


O Jesu, Virgin-born, to thee
Eternal praise and glory be,
Whom with the Father we adore,
And Holy Spirit, evermore.
