by Thomas Sternhold (d. 1549)

The Lord descended from above
Language: English 
The Lord descended from above,
And bow'd the Heavens high,
And underneath his Feet he cast
The Darkness of the Sky.

On [Cherubs and on Cherubims]1
Full royally he rode,
And on the Wings of mighty Winds
Came flying all abroad.
