Behold, the great Creator makes

Behold, the great creator makes
himself a house of clay;
a robe of human form he takes
for ever from this day.

2. Hear this! the wise eternal Word
as Mary’s infant cries;
a servant is our mighty Lord,
and God in cradle lies.

3. This wonder all the world amazed
and shook the starry frame;
the hosts of heaven stood and gazed,
then blessed the Saviour’s name

4. Glad shepherds run to view this sight,
a choir of angels sings;
and eastern magi with delight
adore this King of kings.

5. Join then, all hearts that are not stone,
and all our voices prove
to celebrate the holy One,
the God of peace and love.
