Christmas Songbook

Christ is Born in Bethlehem

Christ❟ by highest heaven adored
Christ❟ the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a virgin❜s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail th❜ Incarnate Deity❟
Pleased as man with man to dwell;
Jesus❟ our Emmanuel.

Come❟ Desire of nations come❟
Fix in us Thy humble home;
Rise❟ the Woman❜s conquering Seed❟
Bruise in us the Serpent❜s head.
Adam❜s likeness❟ Lord efface:
Stamp Thy image in its place;
Second Adam❟ from above❟
Reïnstate us in thy love.

Hail❟ the heav❜n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail❟ the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings❟
Ris❜n with healing in His wings.
Mild He lays His glory by❟
Born that man no more may die❟
Born to raise the sons of earth.
