CHRIST THE ROOT AND OFFSPRING OF DAVID




All hail, thou great Immanuel!
Thy love, thy glory, who can tell?
Angels, and all the heavenly host,
Are in the boundless prospect lost.


Mortals, with reverential songs,
Take this dear name upon your tongues;
With holy fear attempt his praise,
In solemn, yet triumphant lays.


Among a thousand forms of love,
In-which he shines and smiles above,
This with peculiar joy we view,
He's David's root and offspring too.


There Jesus, in the glorious plan,
Shines, the great God, the wond'rous man!
As God, the root of all our bliss,
As man, the branch of righteousness.


All hail, thou dear redeeming Lord!
All hail, thou co-essential word!
All hail, thou root and branch divine!
All hail, and be the glory thine!
