HYMN 13

300

L. M.

The Son of God incarnate. Isa. 9:2,6,7.

The lands that long in darkness lay

Now have beheld a heav'nly light;

Nations that sat in death's cold shade

Are blessed with beams divinely bright.

The virgin's promised Son is born,

Behold th' expected child appear:

What shall his names or titles be?

"The Wonderful, the Counsellor."

[This infant is the mighty God,

Come to be suckled and adored;

Th' eternal Father, Prince of Peace,

The Son of David, and his Lord.]

The government of earth and seas

Upon his shoulders shall be laid;

His wide dominions still increase,

And honors to his name be paid.

Jesus, the holy child, shall sit

High on his father David's throne;

Shall crush his foes beneath his feet,

And reign to ages yet unknown.
