St. Ambrose, ca. 397, German by Martin Luther, 1524; German text
Savior of the nations, come,|
Virgin's Son, make here Thy home!
Marvel now, O heaven and earth,
That the Lord chose such a birth.
2. Not by human flesh and blood,
3. Wondrous birth! O wondrous Child
4. From the Father forth He came|
And returneth to the same,
Captive leading death and hell
High the song of triumph swell!
5. Thou, the Father's only Son,
6. Brightly doth Thy manger shine,
7. Praise to God the Father sing,|
Praise to God the Son, our King,
Praise to God the Spirit be
Ever and eteranally.
