He who came to save the lost
Who left Heavenâ€™s courts of glory
Took on flesh to rescue us.
Who can fathom such a wonder?
Who can plumb a love like this?
Grateful hearts can only ponder
Rapt in blessed joy-filled bliss.
In a manger baby slumbers
Heâ€™s the Saviour of us all
God of Glory, God of wonders
Sleeping peaceful in the stall.
Shepherds visit, bow before Him
Angels told them â€œHe is Lordâ€
First of mankind to adore Him
Go from there to spread the word.
What a message theyâ€™ve been handed
That Emmanuel has come!
Oh that men might understand it
Jesus Christ is God the Son!
Joyful sound of angelâ€™s voices
Filling Heaven with their praise
To this day my heart rejoicesâ€”
Great are Godâ€™s majestic ways.
Self-same message is our treasure
Though we see encroaching night
Source of joy and blissful pleasure
Jesus Christ is our delight.
One day soon in raptureâ€™s glory
Join the vast angelic throng
Face to face before the Holy
Ours an everlasting song.
