Savior of the Nations Come
Words: Attr. Ambrose of Milan, 300's; para. Martin Luther, 1524; trans. Wm. Morton Reynolds, 1850
Tune: NUN KOMM DER HEIDEN HEILAND, plainsong in Eyn Enchiridion , Erfurt, 1524

Savior of the nations, come;
Virgin's Son, here make Thy home!
Marvel now, O heaven and earth,
That the Lord chose such a birth.

From the Father forth He came
And returneth to the same,
Captive leading death and hell
High the song of triumph swell!

Thou, the Father's only Son,
Hast over sin the victory won.
Boundless shall Thy kingdom be;
When shall we its glories see?

Praise to God the Father sing,
Praise to God the Son, our King,
Praise to God the Spirit be
Ever and eternally.
