Almost here…

1.  Savior of the nations, come; Virgin’s Son, make here your home, marvel now, O heav’n and earth, that the Lord chose such a birth.

2.  Not by human flesh and blood, by the Spirit of our God was the Word of God made flesh, woman’s offspring, pure and fresh.

3.  Wondrous birth! O wondrous Child of the virgin undefiled, though by all the world disowned, yet to be in heav’n enthroned!

4.  From the Father’s throne He came and ascended to the same, captive leading death and hell — high the song of triumph swell!

5.  Praise to God the Father sing, praise to God the Son, our King, Praise to God the Spirit be ever and eternally.

— “Savior of the Nations Come,” Ambrose (340-397), translated by William M. Reynolds (1812-1876)

May the Word made flesh bring you peace and joy this Christmas!
