O ye heavens, bend and see

Full Text

1 O ye heavens, bend and see
All that love hath done for me!
See this Holy Infant's head,
Pillowed on a manger bed;
Like a lamb, in Bethle'm's stall,
Slumbers He, the King of all.
Bitter smart
Rends His heart.
Who is He?
God is He.
God and man in one, is He.

2 Come, ye angels, hither, all;
Come to Bethle'm's humble stall,
Come, confess, without dismay,
Whose dear Son is born to-day,
Helpless, poor. Is this your Lord?
Dost believe this Child God's Word?
Without throne,
Without crown.
Who is He?
God is He.
God and man in one, is He.

3 O, ye people, enter in;
For you, lost ones, dead in sin,
This pure Christ is born to-day,
Born, to take your sins away.
Yes, your Saviour lieth here,
Heaven's King, earth's Conqueror,
Lowly birth,
Poor of earth;
Who is He?
God is He.
God and man in one, is He.

Amen.
