See Him Lying on a Bed of Straw
See Him lying on a bed of straw:
A draughty stable with an open door.
Mary cradling the babe she bore:
The Prince of Glory is his name.
O now carry me to Bethlehem
to see the Lord of love again:
Just as poor as was the stable then,
the Prince of Glory when He came!
Star of silver, sweep across the skies,
Show where Jesus in the manger lies;
Shepherds swiftly from your stupor rise,
To see the Saviour of the world.
Angels, sing again the song you sang,
Sing the glory of God's gracious plan.
Sing that Bethlehem's little baby can,
Be the Saviour of us all.
Mine are riches from Your poverty,
From Your innocence, eternity;
Mine forgiveness by your death for me,
Child of sorrow for my joy.
