An angel chorus sears the night
From the hollows of eternity
Hallelujahs from a host that longs
To gaze upon the marvelous mystery.
God Incarnate emptied Himself
The Word becoming fragile flesh
So men bereft of faithful deeds
Might shed their sin for righteousness.
Praise Him who ransoms Adam’s race
The One who crushed the serpent’s head
The fulfillment of Israel’s hope
In Whom grace and holiness met.
