Advent Season 2016 - "From Heaven Above to Earth I Come"

In years past we have studied the meaning of different details of Advent:

NATIVITY - The Basics
The Lowly Life of the Shepherd
Wealthy Wise Men Traveling Far
Angels Hovering 'Round
It's Because God Loved Us So Much

This year I decided to feature some of the lesser Christmas hymns - by "lesser" I mean those that I am not familiar with but are listed in my church's old Hymnal.

Today we are featuring: "From Heaven Above to Earth I Come"
(please listen to both YouTube videos below - the second version is the original German)

From Heaven Above to Earth I Come
            Martin Luther 1483-1546         Tr. Catherine Winkworth 1829-1878                             
1.  From heav'n above to earth I come To bear good news to every home;  Glad tidings of great joy I bring.  Whereof I now will gladly sing:
2. To us the night is born a child of Mary, chosen virgin mild;  This little child, of lowly birth, Shall be the joy of all the earth.

3. This is the Christ, our God and Lord.  Who in all need shall aid afford;  He will Himself our Savior be From all our sins to set us free.

4. These are the tokens we shall mark;  The swaddling clothes and manger dark;  There we shall find the Infant laid By whom the heavens and earth were made.

5. Now let us all with gladsome cheer Go with the shepherds and draw near To see the precious Gift of God, Who hath His own dear Son bestowed.
