All praise to Thee, eternal God,|
Who, clothed in garb of flesh and blood,
Dost take a manger for Thy throne,
While worlds on worlds are Thine alone.
2. Once did the skies before Thee bow;
3. A little Child, Thou art our Guest|
That weary ones in Thee may rest;
Forlorn and lowly is Thy birth
That we may rise to heaven from earth.
4. Thou comest in the darksome night
5. All this for us Thy love hath done;|
By This to Thee our love is won;
For this our joyful songs we raise
And shout our thanks in ceaseless praise.
