On a bed of straw a little boy
Under Mary’s watchful gaze;
Tiny wrapped-up One is God’s own Son—
Silent shepherds stand amazed.
Throughout heavens high in night time sky
Angel choir in gladness sings
Nations far would hear there was born here
David’s Son Who would be King.
Incarnate He came, Jesus His name
None like Him had ever come—
God’s outstanding plan redeeming man was Immanuel His Son.
On a hill of shame the Christ Who came
Undertakes God’s wrath for men;
That most Holy One, God’s perfect Son
Slain as ransom for our sin;
Triune God of grace would sin erase
Albeit at infinite price;
Night of man’s great shame through Christ became
Day of grace by sacrifice.
Incomparable deed, the woman’s Seed
Now has crushed the serpent’s head—
Great and mighty Lord fulfils His Word—Christ is risen from the dead!
On a day to come returns the One—
Unknown day which God has set,
They will look on Him Who died for them,
Sorrowed, mournful and distressed;
They then recognise Lord Jesus Christ
As Messiah long foretold—
Night of sorrow ends, new day begins,
David’s Son reigns on the throne.
Israel’s time of peace will never cease
Now Messiah’s rule is here—
God has guaranteed; His Word’s decreed--- All the signs say He Is Near!!
