God's Dear Son Without Beginning

1. God's dear Son without beginning,
Whom the wicked Jews did scorn;
The only wise without all sinning,
On this blessed day was born;
To save us all from sin and thrall,
Whilst we in Satan's chains were bound;
And shed His blood to do us good
With many a bleeding purple wound.

2. Remember then this blessed morning,
Sweet salvation came unto us:
When that Christ with grace adorned,
Gently strove with love to win us,
That mankind should be of God's fold,
And feed like lambs on Sion's hill;
But not unkind, but bear in mind
How Christ did us remember still.

3. In Bethlehem, King David's City,
Mary's babe had sweet creation;
God and Man endu'd with pity,
And a Saviour of each nation.
Yet Jewry land with cruel hand,
Both first and last his power denied;
When he was born they did him scorn,
And shew'd him malice when he died.

4. No place at all for our Saviour
In Judea could be found,
Yet sweet Mary's mild behaviour,
Patiently upon the ground
Her babe did place in vile disgrace,
Where oxen in their stall did feed;
No midwife mild had this sweet child,
No woman's help at mother's need.

5. No kingly robes nor golden treasure,
Deck'd the birth-day of God's Son;
No pompous train at all took pleasure
To this King of kings to run;
No mantle brave could Jesus have
Upon his cradle for to lye;
No music charms in nurse's arms
To sing the babe a lullaby.

6. Yet as Mary sat in solace
By our Saviour's first beginning,
Hosts of Angels from God's Palace,
Sounding sweet from Heaven's singing.
Yea Heaven and earth at Jesus birth,
With sweet melodious tunes abound;
And every thing in Jewry's King,
Upon the earth gave cheerful sound.

7. Heav'ns perceiving small befriending
Of this promis'd prince of might,
From the christal skies descending,
Blazing glorious beams of light,
A glorious star did shine so far,
That all the earth might see the same;
And nations strange their faith did change,
To yield Him honour, laud, and fame.

8. Then with Angel love inspired,
Three wise princes from the East,
To Bethlehem as they desired,
Came where as our Lord did rest:
And there they laid before the maid,
Unto her Son, her God, her King,
Their offerings sweet, as was most meet,
Unto so great a power to bring.

9. Now to him that hath redeem'd us,
By his precious death and passion;
And us sinners so esteem'd us,
To buy dearly this salvation.
Yield lasting fame, that still the name
Of Jesus may be honour'd here;
And let us say that Christmas Day,
Is still the best day in the year.
