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
Reinstate 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.
