A Poor Brother's Hymnal
Monday, March 06, 2006
  O Savior of Our Fallen Race
O Savior of our fallen race,
O Brightness of the Father's face,
O Son who shared the Father's might
Before the world knew day or night.

O Jesus, very Light of Light,
Our constant star in sin's deep night;
Now hear the prayers your people pray
Throughout the world this holy day.

Remember, Lord of life and grace,
How once, to save our fallen race,
You put our human vesture on
And came to us as Mary's son.

Today, as year by year its light
Bathes all the world in radience bright,
One precious truth outshines the sun:
Salvation comes from you alone.

For from the Father's throne you came,
His banished children to reclaim;
And earth and sea and sky revere
The love of Him who sent you here.

O Christ, Redeemer virgin born,
Let songs of praise your Name adorn,
Whom with the Father we adore
And Holy Spirit evermore.

All my favorite hymns. Most of them are from before the Reformation.
