A message, greatest ever said,
Archangelic – all fearing fled,
A savior dying in our stead,
The glory-scattered sky.
A mighty host of splendor seen,
And shepherds shaking at this scene,
Emmanuel – Eternal King,
Descended from on high.
So glory to the Lord of lords,
Who taught our tongues and wielded words,
And wrought the wonders of the world,
Let honor to him hie!
The Christ would cause the Perfect Peace,
His kingdom ever shall increase,
To reconcile Lord with least,
His purpose was to die.
Oh! Message of Good will to men!
Christ’s death destroying chains of sin,
A life-line lovingly extends,
Leads to eternal life.
This message of His birth is such,
The labor at historic crux,
The Lord – in loving us so much,
Was born our sacrifice.
