A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Monday, December 31, 2007
  Let all together praise our God
Let all together praise our God
Upon His lofty throne;
For He uncloses heav'n today
And gives to us His Son.

He lays aside His majesty
And seems as nothing worth,
And takes on Him a servant's form,
who made the heav'n and earth.

Behold the wonderful exchange
Our Lord with us doth make!
Lo, He assumes our flesh and blood,
And we of heav'n partake.

The glorious gates of paradise
The Angel guards no more;
This day again those gates unfold.
With praise our God adore!
