 Hymn 5. Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise. Matthew i. 18.

Let all adore the' immortal King,
     Maker of heaven and earth!
Angels and men, rejoice and sing
     For your Creator's birth.
A Son is born, a Child is given,
     That mortals born again
May in the new-created heaven
     With God in glory reign.

Note:

Rev. Wesley expanded this meditation into a fuller hymn, Let All Adore the' Immortal King
