Performed by the dwsChorale (transposed)

SATB setting by Carson Cooman, organist at Rochester NY.

The words are by Joseph Proud (1745-1826).

Carson wrote this setting "for Marisa, Christmas 2003".

Down from the worlds of radiant light, behold the Saviour come,

To ransom souls from endless night and bring the wanderers home.

He calls us to his dear embrace from misery and despair

Bids us receive his wondrous grace and seek salvation there

We come Emmanuel at thy call, believe thy gladdening word

Renounce our sins, ourselves, our all, and glory in our Lord

Salvation to Messiah's name, with grateful hearts we sing

And join our voices to proclaim our Saviour and our King

Immortal praise to God belongs for such unfathomed love

Join, all below, in rapturous songs and shout you hosts above.
