Come, let us with speed To Bethlehem go,
The house of that Bread Which God doth bestow:
To all He hath given And sent from above
The Banquet of Heaven, The Son of His love.
By faith we shall see Him promised of old,
And know it is He Of whom we were told;
That heavenly Stranger Fall prostrate before,
And God in a manger With angels adore.
