1. Lo! God, our God, has come:
    To us a Child is born,
To us a Son is given;
    Bless, bless the blessed morn!
O! happy, lowly, lofty birth!
Now God, our God, has come to earth.

2. Rejoice! our God has come,
    In love and lowliness;
The Son of God has come,
    The sons of men to bless;
God with us now descends to dwell,
God in our flesh, Immanuel.

3. Praise ye the Word made flesh;
    True God, true man is He;
Praise ye the Christ of God;
    To Whom all glory be!
Praise ye the Lamb that once was slain,
Praise ye the King that comes to reign.
