Text: Thomas Fischer
Tune: The Church's One Foundation ("Aurelia")
Suggested Usage: Communion, Scripture Readings,
Behold, The Little
the little Baby, Behold, the virgin mild,
Behold the shepherds kneeling before Godís only Child.
Godís very incarnation now sleeps upon the hay,
To Him be adoration, to Him be endless praise.
the little Baby, so small, so weak, so mild.
Godís Son, the King of Glory, a lowly virginís Child,
To all who come adoring, Kings, shepherds, peasants, too.
Will find Godís promise realized, His Word is ever true!
the little Baby, Behold the little Boy
Brings light to all in darkness, to all eternal joy.
Behold the Child, so glorious, in swaddling clothes arrayed
Behold the Savior lowly, who in a manger lays.
Lord, we praise You! To You our hearts we give.
You gave Your Child so tender, You gave that we might live.
Now as we come to worship in manger, oh, so bare
May we find grace to still us and love beyond compare.
