A great and mighty wonder
Our Christmas festal brings:
On earth a lowly infant,
Behold the King of kings!

The Word is made incarnate,
Descending from on high

    "a great and mighty wonder"
    By st. Germanus, 634-734
    Translated by john m. Neale, 1818-1866

    1. A great and mighty wonder.
    A full and holy cure:
    The virgin bears the infant
    With virgin honor purel
    Repeat the hymn again:
    "to god on high be glory
    And peace on earth to men! "

    2. The word becomes incarnate
    And yet remains on high,
    And cherubim sing anthems
    To shepherds from the sky.
    Repeat the hymn again:
    "to god on high be glory
    And peace on earth to men! "

    3. While thus they sing your monarch,
    Those bright angelic bands,
    Rejoice, ye vales and mountains,
    Ye oceans, clap your hands.
    Repeat the hymn again:
    "to god on high be glory
    And peace on earth to men! "

    4. Since all he comes to ransom.
    By all be he adored,
    The infant born in bethl'em,
    The savior and the lord.
    Repeat the hymn again:
    "to god on high be glory
    And peace on earth to menl"

    5. And idol forms shall perish,
    And error shall decay,
    And christ shall wield his scepter,
    Our lord and god for aye.
    Repeat the hymn again:
    "to god on high be glory
    And peace on earth to men! "
