Let all together praise
if you do not hear the tune, click
Let all together praise our God upon the lofty throne,
for God unlocks the heavens today and gives to us a Son.
and gives to us a Son.
Christ lays aside his majesty and seems as nothing worth,
and takes on him a servant's form, who made the heaven and earth.
who made the heaven and earth
Behold the wonderful exchange our Lord with us doth make!
Lo, he assumes our flesh and blood, and we of heaven partake.
and we of heaven partake.
The glorious gates of paradise the angel guards no more.
This day again those gates unfold; with praise our God adore!
with praise our God adore!
