Nor thorns infest the ground

Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse if found

The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love

Offspring of a virgin’s womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead, see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris’n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
