This Is The Truth Sent From Above - Vaughan Williams

Recorded: 2003 Performed by: The King's Singers
Album: Christmas

This is the truth sent from above,
The truth of God, the God of love;
Therefore don't turn me from the door,
But hearken all, both rich and poor.

The first thing that I do relate,
Is that God did man create;
The next thing which to you I'll tell
Woman was made with man to dwell.

Thus we were heirs to endless woes
'Til God the Lord did interpose;
And so a promise soon did run:
That he would redeem us by his Son.

And at this season of the year
Our blest redeemer did appear,
And here did live, and here did preach,
And many thousands he did teach.

Thus he in love to us behaved,
To show us how we must be saved;
And if you want to know the way,
Be pleased to hear what he did say.
