O Eternal Father

O Eternal Father,
author of an unspeakable myst'ry.
There is none can tell the wondrous story,
the story of your birth upon this earth.

Angels and archangels
sing their praises to you, little Jesus.
Mighty kings and lowly shepherds greet you;
they greet the king of all the universe.

Gold and myrrh and incense
are the gifts of the kings to the new-born.
Then the humble shepherd gives a lambkin;
a lamb he brings to you, our holy Son.

To the God incarnate
now all people on earth sing a new song.
Bless us Lord we pray to you, and lead us,
O lead us, Father, to your home in heav'n.

words by Sheena Phillips

based on a translation of the original Ukrainian provided by Vladimir Morozov
