All wise and all good, Almighty God;
Since before time's course began;
It was Jesus who the angels adored;
When He came to earth as a man.
Eternal God from Heaven came down;
Robed and veiled in all majesty;
The Son of God left His Kingly Crown;
So He could live and die for me.
Jesus Christ, even at His birth;
Was a gift from God on high;
Bringing His peace to all His Earth;
In a manager He had chosen to lie.
He, as a person, entered in;
God in man He will ever be.
Now, inseparably we will be as one;
By His Blood, He is within me.
In His weak, fleshly state He appeared;
With His righteousness, kindness, and joy;
My Savior is now manifested here;
So, Satan's work He will destroy.
Jesus, my God, makes known to me;
And Your hidden life You impart;
The great and glorious mystery;
To a transformed believing heart.
