Prince of Heaven

Prince of Heaven

Earth in shadow, restlessly hold
Labour’s waiting, in silent hope
For the promise, it longs to know
What heaven holds

Then the angels, in holy haste
Lift their anthem, Your Saviour lays
In a manger, in humble form
Your King is born

Hail the prince of heaven comes
Angel choirs sound the call
For this babe wrapped in a cloth is
The incarnate word of God
All the kingdom and its power
Resting now in this child
Prince of heaven
Jesus, hope of the world

This means mercy in fullest form
Loving-kindness forevermore
Son of David and Son of God
He is Christ, the Lord

King of glory, we gladly greet
Born in wonder and majesty
Forever worthy, the earth will sing
Oh, prince of heaven, we worship Thee

We can know Him, this prince of peace
In light of mercy, confess our sin
Lay our burdens at Jesus’ feet
And with gladness sing
