Come and Stand Amazed

[Verse 1]

Come and stand amazed, you people

See how God is reconciled

See His plans of love accomplished

See His gift, this newborn child

See the Mighty, weak and tender

See the Word who now is mute

See the Sovereign without splendor

See the Fullness destitute


[Verse 2]

See how humankind received Him

See Him wrapped in swaddling bands

Who as Lord of all creation

Rules the wind by His commands

See him lying in a manger

Without sign of reasoning

Word of God to flesh surrendered

He is wisdom’s crown, our King


[Verse 3] 

O Lord Jesus, God incarnate

Who assumed this humble form

Counsel me and let my wishes

To Your perfect will conform

Light of life, dispel my darkness

Let your frailty strengthen me

Let your meekness give me boldness

Let your burden set me free

O Emmanuel, my savior

Let your death be life for me
