"When Jesus Came"
When Jesus came long years ago
To Bethlehem and a manger low,
The cattle kneeled near the Holy One
In homage there to God’s dear Son
As shepherds dwelt on distant hill,
A glory shone over rock and rill;
An angel stood in the midst of them—
The shepherds quaked for fear of him.
The angel said, “Why do ye fear?
From Heaven’s throne tidings glad I bear!
For unto you there is born this night,
The Saviour-Lord, God’s Child of Light!”
Their eyes beheld a wondrous glow
That filled the sky and the earth below,
While angel bands from the realms above
Hosannas sang of God’s great love.
The echoes rang that holy morn:
O earth, rejoice! Christ, the Lord, is born!
And peace, goodwill, toward sinful men,
For Christ is born in Bethlehem!
Three wise men found the manger place,
With rapture gazed on the Christ Child’s face.
Then kneeling there on earthen floor
Gave gifts of gold, frankincense, myrrh.
Down through the years on Christmas morn
Men’s hearts rejoice that the Christ was born,
And evermore praise His holy name
For grace and truth when Jesus came.
