Verse 1
Let all mortal flesh keep silence

And with fear and trembling stand

Ponder nothing earthly minded
For with blessing in his hand
Christ our God to Earth descendeth

Our full homage to demand

As of old on Earth he stood

Lord of Lords in human vesture

In the body and the blood
He will give to all the faithful

His own self for heavenly food

Spreads its vanguard on the wa

As the light of light descendeth

From the realms of endless day.

That the powers of hell may vanish

As the darkness clears away

At his feet the six winged seraph

Cherubim with sleepless eye
Veil their faces to his presence
As with ceaseless voice they cry
