See the Babe in Manger Lowly

See the babe in manger lowly,
with His mother, meek and mild.
Here the Godhead now incarnate,
Wholly God and yet a child.
Lying in a bed for livestock,
This, the Prince of heav’n was He,
Human flesh and blood and body–
Hypostatic Deity.

See the angels praise His coming,
He their King from heaven’s throne.
See the shepherds run to greet Him,
Come to worship Him alone.
See His mother, gentle Mary,
Cradle Him with tender kiss.
She, the blessed among all women,
Bearing such a Son as this.

Yes, her Son, indeed a Savior–
Now a stable, soon a cross.
He will live in pure perfection,
Then he’ll die to pay sin’s cost.
Those who trust in God incarnate,
Jesus Christ, the Son of Man,
Will gain pardon—full forgiveness.
Praise Him for His saving plan!
