Hymn Selection


WE see Thee, Lord of glory,
Descending from above,
And learn the wondrous story
Of God come down in love.
Thus cradled in a manger,
We see Thee, Jesus, there,
A houseless, homeless Stranger,
Our sorrows all to share.
A strange yet fit beginning
Of all that life of woe,
In which Thy grace was winning
Poor man his God to know!
O love, all though surpassing!
That Thou shouldst with us be,
Nor yet in triumph passing,
But human infancy!
We gaze upon Thy weakness-
The manger and the cross;
We love Thee for Thy meekness
Through suff'ring, pain and loss.
We see the Godhead glory
Shine through that human veil,
And, willing, hear the story
Of love that's come to heal.

J.N. Darby
