The Incarnate God


for a cappella choir SATB (opt. SSAATBB)
text by Charles Wesley
approx. 4 min.


Let and earth and heaven combine,
Angels and men agree,
To praise in songs divine,
The incarnate Deity
Our God contracted to a span,
Incomprehensibly made man.
He laid His glory by,
And wrapped Him in our clay;
Unmarked by human eye,
The latent Godhead lay
Infant of Days He here became,
And bore the loved Immanuel’s name.
Unsearchable the love
That has the Savior brought;
The grace is far above
Or man’s or angel’s thought;
Suffice for us that God we know,
Our God was manifest below
