LET earth and heaven combine,

By A Collection of Hymns

      4-6s & 2-8s.
      1 LET earth and heaven combine,
      Angels and men agree,
      To praise in songs divine
      The incarnate Deity,
      Our God contracted to a span,
      Incomprehensibly made man.

      2 He laid his glory by,
      He wrapped him in our clay;
      Unmarked by human eye,
      The latent Godhead lay;
      Infant of days he here became,
      And bore the mild Immanuel's name.

      3 Unsearchable the love
      That hath the Saviour brought;
      The grace is far above
      Or man or angels thought;
      Suffice for us that God, we know,
      Our God, is manifest below.

      4 He deigns in flesh to appear,
      Widest extremes to join;
      To bring our vileness near,
      And make us all divine:
      And we the life of God shall know,
      For God is manifest below.

      5 Made perfect first in love,
      And sanctified by grace,
      We shall from earth remove,
      And see his glorious face:
      Then shall his love be fully showed,
      And man shall then be lost in God.
