The Incarnate God. Isa. 7. 14; Matt. 1. 23

C. Wesley                                    148th

1

Let earth and heaven combine,
Angels and men agree,
To praise, in songs divine,
The incarnate Deity;
Our God contracted to a span,
Incomprehensibly made man.

2
He laid his glory by,
And wrapped him in our clay;
Unmarked by human eye,
The latent Godhead lay;
Infant of Days he here became,
And bore the loved Immanuel’s name.

3
Unsearchable the love
That has the Saviour brought;
The grace is far above
Or man’s or angel’s thought;
Suffice for us, that God we know,
Our God, was manifest below!
