"To save a race by sin undone"

A Blesséd Christmas!

O Heavenly Word of God on high,
Whose love has brought salvation nigh,
And from the Father's heart didst come
To save a race by sin undone.
All praise, eternal Son, to thee
Whose advent sets thy people free,
Whom with the Father we adore
And Spirit blest, for evermore.
Latin, 10th century
