Hymn

The light unquenchable became the Christ.
The love invincible became the Lamb.
In ignorance they sacrificed
The woman's seed and great I AM.

From high infinity came forth the Word.
From grand eternity emerged the Son.
Throughout created worlds was heard
Pronouncement of perfection done.

Exalted Jesus by the jasper glow
Prepares a feast for millions of the meek.
He nullifies the debt they owe
And brings them to the joy they seek.

The night so mighteous will someday fail.
At last the morning glorious will rise,
When evil, raging to prevail,
Is crushed by warriors from the skies.
