Blessed Redeemer

"Angels adore Him,
Hark! We seem to hear
Echoes from Heaven,
Angel echoes clear.
Jesus the mighty
Came to earth to bring
Priceless redemption
Christ our Prophet,

 Priest and King!" 
- Flora Kirk­land

"Virgin of the Angels"
  Adolphe William Bouguereau

“Let all the angels of God worship Him.” Hebrews 1:6


 "O morning stars together,
 proclaim the holy birth,
And praises sing to God the King,

 and peace to men on earth!"
 "Little Town Of Bethlehem"
-Phillip Brooks 1867

 William-Adolphe Bouguereau

What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.
Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spears shall pierce him through,
the cross he bore for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
the Babe, the Son of Mary.
So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the Son of Mary.
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.
-William Chatterton Dix 1865
Set to the tune of "Greensleeves"
an English folksong

“Those He redeemed

 from the hand of the foe,
 those He gathered
 from the lands,
from east and west,
 from north and south.”
 Psalm 107:2

How sweetly o’er
 the mountain of Zion,
 lovely Zion,
The anthem of ages 

comes sweeping along;
The anthem of the faithful,

 we hear, and, rejoicing,
Our hearts in glad measure

 keep tune with the song.


O the Lion of Judah
 hath triumphed forever,
O the Lion of Judah

 is mighty and strong.
O happy, happy tidings, 
the kingdom now is opened,
The seals are all broken;

 proclaim it afar;
From bondage

 and oppression 
by Him we are delivered,
The Lion of Judah,

 the bright Morning Star.

Hosanna in the highest,
 all glory everlasting,
The cross and its banner

 triumphant shall wave;
Hosanna in the highest,

 all glory everlasting,
The Lion of Judah

 His people will save.


-Fanny Crosby


Come Soon Lord Yeshua!
