HYMN FOR CHRISTMAS.

ADAPTED TO THE SPANISH CHANT. Far, far from realms of light

Sinners, he left for you Slowly descending;

Mansions of glory;
Clothed in fair robes of light,

Sinners, he died for you-
Angels are bending.

Marvellous story!
Hark, hark, the words they say,

Come, come, he waits to bless,

If you your sins confess,
Jesus is born to-day;

He will your woes redress-
Send all your fears away,
Come and adore him.

Come and adore him.

Saints, join the wide-spread song, Low lies his infant head,

Bring anthems loud and long, Peacefully slumbering,

To him our thanks belong-
While round his manger-bed

Sing hallelujah.
Angels attend him.

All hail, thou glorious King,
Good-will and peace on earth

We will our tribute bring, Came at the Saviour's birth;

We will thy praises sing,
Shout it with rapturous mirth-

And all adore thee.
Come and adore him,

Torquay.
