Oh, what a wonder that God has performed,
Yes, and oh, what a wonder we see --
Jesus the Lord, Incarnate Word,
Come to bring to us all liberty!
Oh, what a wonder
that God has performed,
Oh, the wonderous grace we have seen --
Counting the cost, loving the lost,
Jesus has come to redeem!
There, in a manger, the Eternal Lord,
Coming down from the heavens above --
All you, draw near: God's Son is here!
Come to bring to us mercy and love.
See, in the heavens, the angels rejoice,
For Messiah is now in the land --
Prophets of old long had foretold;
Now, we may, too, understand His plan!
Come, bring your own gifts, before Him bow down,
As the Wise Men of old did before.
Bring Him your love; give Him your life;
Lay it all at the feet of the Lord.
And come as the shepherds
to gather around,
Sing His praise as we welcome His birth.
Jesus our King, come to redeem,
Bringing hope with His presence on earth.
Yes, Jesus our King, come to redeem,
Bringing hope everlasting to earth!
