Was not Christ our Savior
Sent unto us from God above,
Not for our good behavior,
But only of His mercy and love?
If this be true, as true it is,
Truly indeed;
Great thanks to God to yield for this
Then had we need.

This did our God for very troth,
To train to Him the soul of man,
And justly to perform his oath
To Sarah, and to Abraham, than
That through his seed, all nations should
Most blessed be,
And in due time performed, He would
All flesh should see.

Which wondrously is brought to pass,
And in our sight already done,
By sending as His promise was
(To comfort us) His only Son,
Even Christ, I mean, that virgin's child
In Bethlehem born:
That Lamb of God, that Prophet mild,
With crowned thorn.

For this glad news, this feast doth bring,
To God the Son and Holy Ghost,
Let man give thanks, rejoice and sing,
From world to world, from coast to coast,
For other gifts in many ways,
That God doth send:
Let us in Christ give God the praise,
Till life shall end.
