O sing of Christ, whose birth made known the kindness of the Lord, Eternal Word made flesh and bone so we could be restored.
Upon our frail humanity God’s finger chose to trace the fullness of His deity, the icon of His grace.
Lord Jesus Christ, You deigned to dwell among us here on earth as God with us, Emmanuel, to bring this holy birth.
Though rich, You willingly became one with our poverty, that we might share Your wealth and name for all eternity!
– LSB 362 v.1, 4
