All other Bethlehem babies were ignored,
There would be only one who would be the Lord.
They would know Him when their search would show
They found Him! The Christ-Child lying on the straw.
Their Savior had come! The shepherds were in awe.
This was the setting God had chose
No palace crib nor princely nursery;
So we could understand His love
the Eternal God left Heaven’s glories above,
It was His love for you and me that brought Him
His birth in a stable announced in a dramatic way
Amazing! Just to have Almighty God become so small!
All this He conveyed by simply being found…….
