Meditating on the humble incarnation of our Lord Jesus to die for our sins brings with it renewed encouragement regarding His second coming, the Resurrection, and the glories to come. How blessed we are to be able to look back and remember what the Lord has done to redeem us, and to look forward in faith and joyful hope to the fulfillment of His promise to come again to gather us unto Himself in glory. “I will come again.” John 14:3.
Come, Thou Savior of our race,
Choicest Gift of heav’nly grace!
O Thou blessèd virgin’s Son,
Be Thy race on earth begun,
Be Thy race on earth begun.
Not of mortal blood or birth,
He descends from Heaven to earth;
By the Holy Ghost conceived,
God and man by us believed,
God and man by us believed.
Wondrous birth! O wondrous Child
Of the virgin undefiled!
Though by all the world disowned,
Still to be in Heaven enthroned,
Still to be in Heaven enthroned
From the Father forth He came,
And returneth to the same;
Captive leading death and hell—
High the song of triumph swell,
High the song of triumph swell!
Equal to the Father now,
Though to dust Thou once didst bow,
Boundless shall Thy kingdom be;
When shall we its glories see,
When shall we its glories see?
