BEFORE the heavens were spread abroad,
From everlasting was the Word:
With God he was-the Word was God,
And shall divinely be adored.

By his own power were all things made,
By him supported all things stand:
He is the whole creation's head,
And angels fly at his command

But lo! he leaves his Father's throne,
Descends to earth the Prince of Peace;
When in his form the Godhead shone,
How full of peace! how full of grace!
