1487. Favor and Peace on Earth

1. Favor and peace on earth, and praise in Heav’n!
To us a Son is born, a Child is giv’n!
Today Jehovah lays aside His crown,
Today the Savior of the world comes down,
God over all supreme, who all things made,
Clothed with our flesh and in a manger laid,
Is on this happy morn to mortals giv’n:
Favor and peace on earth, and praise in Heav’n!
