He has come! the Christ of God - A Bethlehem Hymn
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

A Bethlehem Hymn.

"Mundum implens, in præsepio jacens." (Augustine)

1. He has come! the Christ of God;
  left for us his glad abode,
stooping from his throne of bliss,
  to this darksome wilderness.

2. He has come! the Prince of Peace;
  come to bid our sorrows cease;
come to scatter with his light
  all the shadows of our night.

3. He, the mighty King, has come!
  making this poor earth his home;
come to bear our sin's sad load, –
  Son of David, Son of God!

4. He has come, whose name of grace
  speaks deliverance to our race;
left for us his glad abode, –
  Son of Mary, Son of God!

5. Unto us a Child is born!
  Ne'er has earth beheld a morn
among all the morns of time,
  half so glorious in its prime!

6. Unto us a Son is given!
  He has come from God's own heaven,
bringing with him from above,
  holy peace and holy love.

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope I, 1878, 108-109.
