Savior of the Nations, Come
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.
