The ancient law departs

And all its terrors cease;

For Jesus makes with faithful hearts

A covenant of peace.

The Light of Light divine,

True Brightness undefiled,

He bears for us the shame of sin,

A holy, spotless Child.

Today the Name is thine,

At which we bend the knee;

They call the Jesus, Child divine!

Our Jesus deign to be.
