O Ye Heavens Bend And See


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.

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.

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.
