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

 

King of kings, yet born of Mary

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 heav'nly food

 

Rank on rank the host of heaven

Spreads its vanguard on the way

As the Light of light descendeth

From the realms of endless day

That the pow'rs of hell may vanish

As the darkness clears away

 

At his feet the six-winged Seraph

Cherubim, with sleepless eye

Veil their faces to the presence

As with ceaseless voice they cry

Alleluia, Alleluia

Alleluia, Lord most high!

PICARDY (French folk tune, 17th century), arr. Lowell Prescott
Text: Liturgy of St. James
