God of God, the uncreated
Love, before the world began;
He the source and he the ending,
Son of God and Son of Man,
Lord of all the things that have been,
Master of the eternal plan,
Evermore and evermore.

He is here, whom generations
Sought throughout the ages long;
Promised by the ancient prophets,
Justice for a world of wrong,
God’s salvation for the faithful:
Him we praise in endless song
Evermore and evermore.

Happy is that day for ever,
When, by God the Spirit’s grace,
Lowly Mary, virgin mother,
Bore the Saviour of our race.
Man and child, the world’s redeemer
Now displays his sacred face
Evermore and evermore.

Praise him, Heaven of the heavens,
Praise him angels in the height;
Priests and prophets bow before him,
Saints who longed to see this sight.
Let no human voice be silent,
In his glory hearts unite
Evermore and evermore!
