They presented unto Him gifts; gold, and frankincense and myrrh.@Matthew 2:11

Johann Töltschig, circa 1746.

Pilgrimage (Herrnhut), from the Herrnhut MS. Choral Buch, 1735–45 (🔊 pdf nwc).

What offering shall I bring to Thee,
Immanuel, my King and God?
Who didst vouchsafe a man to be
To save me by Thy precious blood;
Thou, at whose birth the angels sing,
Peace upon earth, goodwill to men,
To whom the sages humbly bring
Their gifts, though Thou appear so mean.

This will I do, Thou Child divine,
I’ll give Thee that for which Thou cam’st;
My soul and body, Lord, are Thine,
And them in love to me Thou claim’st:
My humble sacrifice receive,
Dear Jesus, born to bleed for me,
That I by faith in Thee might live,
And with Thee live eternally.
