This is the truth sent from above

Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 2 hymnals Lyrics: 1 This is the truth sent from above, the truth of God, the God of love; therefore don't turn me from the door but hearken all, both rich and poor. 2 The first thing that I will relate, that God at first did man create; the next thing which to you I tell - woman was made with him to dwell. 3 Then after that 'twas God's own choice to place them both in paradise, there to remain from evil free except they ate of such a tree. 4 But they did eat, which was a sin, and thus their ruin did begin - ruined themselves, both you and me, and all of our posterity. 5 Thus we were heirs to endless woes till God the Lord did interpose; and so a promise soon did run: that he'd redeem us by his Son. 6 At at this season of the year our blest Redeemer did appear, and here did live, and here did preach, and many thousands he did teach. 7 Thus he in love to us behaved, to show us how we must be saved; and if you want to know the way, be pleased to hear what he did say: 8 'Go preach the gospel,' now he said, 'to all the nations that are made! And those that do believe on me, from all their sins I'll set them free.' 9 O seek! O seek of God above that saving faith that works by love! And, if he's pleased to grant thee this, thou't sure to have eternal bliss. 10 God grant to all within this place true saving faith, that special grace which to his people doth belong: and thus I chose my Christmas song.

O Chief of Cities, Bethlehem

Author: Marcus Aurelius Clemens Prudentius, 348-413 Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 3 hymnals Lyrics: 1 O chief of cities, Bethlehem, Of David’s crown the fairest gem, But more to us than David’s name, In you, as man, the Savior came. 2 Beyond the sun in splendor bright, Above you stands a wondrous light Proclaiming from the conscious skies That here, in flesh, the Godhead lies. 3 The Wise Men, seeing him so fair, Bow low before him, and with prayer Their treasured eastern gifts unfold Of incense, myrrh, and royal gold. 4 The golden tribute owns him king, But frankincense to God they bring, And last, prophetic sign, with myrrh They shadow forth his sepulcher. 5 O Jesus, whom the Gentiles see, With Father, Spirit, One in Three: To you, O God, be glory giv’n By saints on earth and saints in heav’n.
