2 Here the fairest Rose we see,
3 He, the great incarnate Word,
Anon. H. Brueckner, Tr.
He heard an angel sing,
Of Christ, the heav'nly King.
2 He neither shall be bornen
In housen nor in hall,
But in an oxen's stall.
In purple nor in pall, But in the fair white linen
That usen babies all. 4 He neither shall be rockéd
In silver nor in gold, But in a wooden manger
That resteth on the mould. 5 As Joseph was a-walking
There did an angel sing; And Mary's Child at midnight
Was born to be our King. 6 Then be ye glad, good people,
This night of all the year, And light ye up your candles,
For His star shineth clear.
138 ALL my heart this night rejoices,
As I hear,
Far and near, Sweetest angel voices; "Christ is born,” their choirs are singing,
Till the air
2 Hark! a voice from yonder manger,
Soft and sweet,
You are freed;
All you need
3 Come, then, let us hasten yonder;
Here let all,
Great and small,
Hail the star
That from far
139 JESUS! Name of wondrous love,
Name, all other names above; Name, at which must ev'ry knee
Bow in deep humility.
To the fallen sons of earth.
"Jesus shall His people save.' 3 Jesus! Name of mercy mild,
Given to the Holy Child,
First He tasted here below.
Under all the mighty heaven,
Burst his fetters, and is saved.
Human name of Him above!
W. W. How.
140 FROM glory unto glory!
Be this our joyous song;
We bravely march along :
O word of stirring cheer,
Another glad New Year.
2 From glory unto glory!
What great things He hath done! What wonders He hath shown us,
What triumphs He hath won!
What mighty blessings crown
His own so freely down!
3 The fulness of His blessing
Encompasseth our way; The fulness of His promises
Crowns every brightening day; The fulness of His glory
Is beaming from above, While more and more are taught of God
To know that mighty love.
4 And closer yet and closer
The golden bonds shall be,
In pure sincerity;
The circling glory glow,
That mighty love to know.
