What kind of greatness can this be


    • What kind of greatness can this be, 
    • that chose to be made small? 
    • Exchanging untold majesty 
    • for a world so pitiful. 
    • That God should come as one of us, 
    • I'll never understand. 
    • The more I hear the story told, 
    • the more amazed I am. 

    • O what else can I do 
    • but kneel and worship you, 
    • and come just as I am, 
    • my whole life an offering. 

    • The One in whom we live and move 
    • in swaddling clothes lies bound. 
    • The voice that cried, 'Let there be light', 
    • asleep without a sound. 
    • The One who strode among the stars, 
    • and called each one by name, 
    • lies helpless in a mother's arms 
    • and must learn to walk again. 

    • What greater love could he have shown 
    • to shamed humanity, 
    • yet human pride hates to believe 
    • in such deep humility. 
    • But nations now may see his grace 
    • and know that he is near, 
    • when his meek heart, his words, his works 
    • are incarnate in us.
