just a saviour

Just a poor couple, so young and in love
Yielding their lives to Jehovah above

Just an old stable, the animals’ home
Shelt’ring the travelers; no longer they roam

Just a gray donkey, an ox and a lamb
Sharing warm breath with the tiny I Am

Just a wood manger, becoming a bed
Fit for the Christ Child to cradle His head

Just some clean straw, tiny infant to hold
While angels who guard Him in wonder behold

Just God in mercy, the Almighty One
Sending redemption through Jesus, His Son

“Christ Jesus, Who, being in very nature God,
……..made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness,
and being found in appearance
as a man,
he humbled himself
and became obedient to death–
even death on a cross!”
He has “the name that is above every name,
that at the name of Jesus
every knee should bow,
in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,
to the glory of God the Father.”
