Der Glanz der höchsten Herrlichkeit

Text:

Der Glanz der höchsten Herrlichkeit,
Das Ebenbild von Gottes Wesen,
Hat in bestimmter Zeit
Sich einen Wohnplatz auserlesen.
Des ewgen Vaters einigs Kind,
Das ewge Licht von Licht geboren,
Itzt man in der Krippe findt.
O Menschen, schauet an,
Was hier der Liebe Kraft getan!
In unser armes Fleisch und Blut,
(Und war denn dieses nicht verflucht, verdammt, verloren?)
Verkleidet sich das ewge Gut.
So wird es ja zum Segen auserkoren.
