  1. See: the Saviour is born to us;
    Yes, to offer us salvation,
    To enlighten the nations.
    Let us straighten his paths;
    For we are not worthy of untying his feet;
    Still less to be saved by Him!
    But he is chased away,
    He must flee the country:
    That is how we treat the Lord.
    All that done for us:
    Yes, us!
  2. He is come to submit to us:
    See Him now on the Jordan!
    What does he have to strike our eye?
    Here he is without even a place for sleep!
    Yet he has but done good;
    He came, a child
    Of this world hated, for us!
    See Him come, seated on a donkey.
    That is how He enters Jerusalem.
    All that done for us:
    Yes, us!
  3. Here the Lord has died:
    There on the tree He is!
    For us; yes, to offer us salvation:
    See His spilled blood, His broken body, His crown.
    We thank You, Lord, that You came down towards us;
    Thank You: we praise You for Your grace.
    Amen; Amen.
