O Ye Heavens, Bend and See
By H. 1708
Trans. by Mary Welden 1887

O ye Heavens, bend and see
All that love hath done for me!
See, this Holy Infants head;
Pillowed on a manger bed;
Like a lamb in Bethlehemís stall
Slumbers He the King of all.
Bitter smart. Rends His heart.
Who is He? God is He.
God and man in one is He.

Come ye angels, hither all;
Come to Bethlehemís humble stall,
Come confess, without dismay,
Whose dear Son is born today,
Helpless, Poor, is this your Lord?
Dost believe this Child Godís Word?
Without a throne; without a crown.
Who is He? Man is He.
God and man in one is He.

O, ye people, enter in;
For you, lost ones, dead in sin,
This pure Christ is born today,
Born to take your sins away.
Yes, your Savior lieth here,
Heavenís King, Earthís Conqueror,
Lowly birth, poor on earth,
Who is He? God is He.
God and man in one is He.
