[He] made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.@Philippians 2:7–8

How precious is the story,
Of our Redeemer’s birth,
Who left the realms of glory,
And came to dwell on earth:
He saw our sad condition,
Our guilt, and sin, and shame;
To save us from perdition
The blessèd Jesus came.

He came to earth from Heaven,
To weep and bleed and die,
That we might be forgiven,
And raised to God on high;
His kindness and compassion,
To children then were shown,
The heirs of His salvation,
He claimed them for His own.

Oh, may I love this Savior,
So good, so kind, so mild!
And may I find His favor,
A young though sinful child;
And in His blissful Heaven,
May I at last appear,
With all my sins forgiven,
To know and praise Him there.
