1516. From God the Father, Virgin-Born

1. From God the Father, virgin-born
To us the only Son came down;
By death the font to consecrate,
The faithful to regenerate.

2. Beginning from His home on high
In human flesh He came to die;
Creation by His death restored,
And shed new joys of life abroad.

3. Glide on, O glorious Sun, and bring
The gift of healing on Your wing;
To every dull and clouded sense
The clearness of Your light dispense.

4. Abide with us, O Lord, we pray;
The gloom of darkness chase away;
Your work of healing, Lord, begin,
And take away the stain of sin.

5. Lord, once You came to earth’s domain
And, we believe, shall come again;
Be with us on the battlefield,
From every harm Your people shield.

6. To You, O Lord, all glory be
For this Your blest epiphany;
To God whom all His hosts adore,
And Holy Spirit evermore.
