6. From Heaven Above to Earth I Come

LSB 358

1 “From heav’n above to earth I come
to bear good news to ev’ry home;
glad tidings of great joy I bring,
whereof I now will say and sing:

2 “To you this night is born a child
of Mary, chosen virgin mild;
this little child of lowly birth
shall be the joy of all the earth.

3 “This is the Christ, our God most high,
who hears your sad and bitter cry;
he will himself your Savior be
from all your sins to set you free.

4 “He will on you the gifts bestow
prepared by God for all below,
that in his kingdom bright and fair,
you may with us his glory share.
