Down from the Worlds of Radiant Light
Christmas Hymn & Carol Lyrics
Down from the worlds of radiant light
Behold the Savior come,
To ransom souls from endless night
And bring the wandírers home.
He calls us to His dear embrace
From misíry and despair,
Bids us receive His wondrous grace,
And seek salvation there.
We come, Emmanuel, at Thy call,
Believe Thy gladíning Word,
Renounce our sins, ourselves, our all,
And glory in our Lord.
Salvation to Messiahís Name
With grateful hearts we sing,
And join our voices to proclaim
Our Saviour and our King.
Immortal praise to God belongs
For such unfathomed love;
Join, all below, in rapturous songs,
And shout, ye hosts above.
