1 He that lay in lowly manger,
Now is known as Heaven’s king;
What but angels sang, aforetime,
Now have men been taught to sing:
2 God have glory, in the highest:
Peace on earth, good will towards men:
Over all the tide of ages,
Ever now as it was then.
3 Lo, He came, the Lord of glory!
Born and cradled in a stall:
Sure He had but scanty welcome,
Seeing He was Lord of all.
4 Yet, in sooth, He sought no other,
Nor to earth for homage came;
Here He took the form of servant,
Here He bared the cheek to shame.
5 Not of this world was His kingdom,
He lived not at monarch’s cost;
He sought not the known and honored,
But He came to seek the lost.
6 Glory, worship, love and service,
To the blessèd One in Three;
As it was in the beginning,
Is, and evermore shall be.Source: The Cyber Hymnal #14211
