When God desired to promulgate His word
He, with a language to demonstrate His love,
Has spoken in the Person of the Son,
The Heir of all, through whom all things had birth,
The One by whom His glory is effulged
While of His substance the Son is the efflux.
Still all He was in all He has become,
A new relationship has now begun,
So that the Firstborn as brought into the world
Proved a fresh cause for angels to exult;
His place of glory exceeds them by so much
As His Name has a more exceeding worth.
