THE MAKER OF THE STIN AND MOON, THE MAKER OF OUR EARTH

1.THE Maker of the stin and moon,
The Maker of our earth,
Lo! late in time, a fairer boon,
Himself is brought to birth.

2.How blest was all creation then,
When God so gave increase;
And Christ, to heal the heartsof men,
Brought righteousness and peace.

3.No star in all the heights of heaven
But burned to see Him go;
Yet unto earth alone was given
His human form to know.

4.His human form, by man denied,
Took death for human sin ;
His endless love, through faith descried,
Still lives the world to win.

5.0 perfect Love, outpassing sight,
O Light beyond our ken,
Come down through all the world tonight,
And heal the hearts of men!
Amen.
