1. Sons of men, behold from far,
Hail the long expected star!
Star of truth, that gilds the night,
Guides bewildered nature right.

2. Mild it shines on all beneath,
Piercing thro' the shades of death;
Scattering error's wide-spread night,
Kindling darkness into light.

3. Nations all, remote and near,
Haste to see your God appear;
Haste! for Him your hearts prepare;
Meet Him manifested there.

4. Sing, ye morning stars, again!
God descends to dwell with men
Deigns for man His life t' employ;
Shout, ye sons of God, for joy.
