HYMN 14. First Part. P.M.
The eternal Son of God took upon him the very nature of man. (cont.)

  4 That we may Immanuel sing,
As we ought, our God and King.

HYMN 14. Second Part. L.M.
The birth of Christ.

  1 TO us a child is born from heav'n;
To us the Son of God is giv'n;
Gentiles in Jesus' name shall trust,
And of his glories make their boast:
  2 His name the Wonderful shall be;
His wonders heav'n and earth shall see:
The Counsellor of truth and grace,
Who leads in paths of righteousness.
  3 The Mighty God, that glorious name,
His works and word join to proclaim:
The Everlasting Father, He
And the whole church his family.
  4 The Prince of Peace, on David's throne;
And nations, yet unborn, shall own
His Sov'reign and his gracious sway;
Glad of the honour to obey.
  5 Justice and Judgment he'll maintain
To everlasting ages reign:
And his blest empire shall increase,
Till time, with all its movements, cease.
  6 Our faith in grateful triumph boasts
These wonders of the Lord of Hosts:
And trusts the love, that form'd the plan,
To perfect what that love began.

HYMN 14. Third Part. S.M.
The incarnation.

  1 YE saints, proclaim abroad
   The honours of your King;
To Jesus, your incarnate God,
   Your songs of praises sing.

HYMN 14. Third Part. S.M.
The incarnation. (cont.)

  2 Not angels, round the throne
   Of majesty above,
Are half so much oblig'd as we,
   To our Immanuel's love.
  3 They never sunk so low,
   They are not rais'd so high;
They never knew such depths of woe,
   Such heights of majesty.
  4 The Saviour did not join
   Their nature to his own;
For them he shed no blood divine,
   Nor breath'd a single groan.
  5 May we with angels vie,
   The Saviour to adore;
Our debts are greater far than theirs,
   O be our praises more!

HYMN 14. Fourth Part. C.M.
Jesus came to save Sinners.

  1 HARK the glad sound! the Saviour's come!
   The Saviour promised long!
Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,
   And ev'ry voice a song.
  2 On him the Spirit largely pour'd
   Exerts its sacred fire;
Wisdom and might, and zeal and love
   His holy breast inspire.
  3 He comes the pris'ners to release,
   In Satan's bondage held;
The gates of brass before him burst,
   The iron fetters yield.
  4 He comes from thickest films of vice
   To clear the mental ray,
And on the eye-balls of the blind
   To pour celestial day.
