Consider this, my friends today,
when baby Jesus, in a manger lay:
that God's glory has been put on display,
and in a most magnificent way,
that as a baby, now grown to man,
he has completed his most glorious plan.
Love can be seen, but with real clarity now,
not just through, but by pain upon his brow.
This is how God's love is best displayed,
when justice met mercy on the cross that day.
And only through birth and life and death
did resurrection show its breadth:
Sin and Satan and Death defeated,
no hold on Christ had they completed,
now victorious he sits upon a throne
and we through faith in Christ alone
by grace are cleansed from sin: atoned!
partakers in this glorious reality
captured by his love: complete finality.
No other name have lips ever formed,
that took the universe in such a storm:
glory, grace, love, justice, his name,
every knee will bow, one day, proclaim
but this address to him completed
first by Mary when... "I'll call him Jesus."
So consider this, my friends today,
when baby Jesus in a manger lay:
that God' glory has been put on display,
and in the most magnificent way,
that little baby will grow to man,
he will suffer and die according to plan.
so bend your knee in awe today:
a manger scene is on display.
