and manifest thy virgin-birth:
let every age adoring fall;
such birth befits The God Of All.
2 Begotten of no human will,
but of The Spirit, thou art still
The Word Of God, in flesh arrayed,
The Savior, now to us displayed.
3 From God The Father He proceeds,
to God The Father back He speeds,
runs out His course to death and hell,
returns on God's high throne to dwell.
4 O equal to thy Father, thou!
Gird on thy fleshly mantle now,
the weakness of our mortal state
with deathless might invigorate.
5 Thy cradle here shall glitter bright,
and darkness glow with new-born light,
no more shall night extinguish day,
where love's bright beams their power display.
6 O Jesu, virgin-born, to thee
eternal praise and glory be,
whom with The Father we adore
and Holy Spirit, evermore.

Romans 6:23 KJV For the wages of sin is death; but The Gift Of God is eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 10:9,10,13 KJV 9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth The Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of The Lord shall be saved.
