Savior of the nations Jesus

Savior of the nations, come, Show yourself, the virgin’s son. Fill with wonder all the earth, That our God chose such a birth.
Not by human power or seed Did the woman’s womb conceive; Only by the Spirit’s breath Was the Word of God made flesh.
Mary then was found with child, Still a virgin, chaste and mild, God had favored her with grace To receive the Prince of Peace.
Christ laid down his majesty, Passed through dark Gethsemane, Though he left his Father’s home, Christ now sits on God’s own throne.
Since the star at Bethlehem Brought new light to earth again, May our faith shine bright each day; Faithful God, keep sin away.
Christ in glory, intercede For your creatures’ suffering need. Let your resurrecting power Soon complete the victory hour.
Praise to you, O Lord, we sing. Praise to Christ, our newborn King! With the Father, Spirit, one, Let your lasting kingdom come.
