1. Let all adore the' immortal King,
     Maker of heaven and earth;
Angels and men, rejoice and sing,
     At our Immanuel's birth.

2 A Son is born, a child is given,
     That mortals, born again,
May in the new-made earth and heaven,
     With God for ever reign.

3 Father, thy heavenly voice I own,
Thy gracious majesty;
Thro' Jesus, thy beloved Son,
Thou art well-pleas'd with me!

4 But our whole race to Christ unite,
     And by thy Spirit join'd,
Thou wilt eternally delight
     In all thy ransom'd kind.

5 Salvation from our sins we found,
     Through Jesu's grace forgiv'n;
And Jesu's grace doth more abound,
     And makes us meet for heaven.

6 The hallowing virtue of thy Name,
     Our spotless souls shall prove;
And to the utmost fav'd, proclaim,
     Our Lord's almighty love.
