7.6.7.6.


1
WE see Thee, Lord of glory,
Descending from above,
And learn the wondrous story
Of God come down in love.
2
Thus cradled in a manger,
We see Thee, Jesus, there,
A houseless, homeless Stranger,
Our sorrows all to share.
3
A strange yet fit beginning
Of all that life of woe,
In which Thy grace was winning
Poor man his God to know!
4
O love, all though surpassing!
That Thou shouldst with us be,
Nor yet in triumph passing,
But human infancy!
5
We gaze upon Thy weakness-
The manger and the cross;
We love Thee for Thy meekness
Through suff'ring, pain and loss.
6
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
