 1What kind of greatness

 3.1
 4What kind of greatness
 5can this be?
 6That chose to be made small,
 7exchanging untold majesty
 8for a world so pitiful?
 9That God should come
10as one of us
11I’ll never understand -
12the more I hear the story told,
13the more amazed I am.

16Oh, what else can I do
17but kneel and worship You
18and come just as I am,
19my whole life an offering.

22The One in whom
23we live and move
24in swaddling cloths lies bound.
25The voice that cries
26‘Let there be light!’,
27asleep without a sound.
28The One who strode
29among the stars,
30and called each one by name,
31lies helpless in a mother’s arms
32and must learn to walk again.

35What greater love
36could He have shown
37to shamed humanity?
38Yet human pride
39hates to believe
40in such deep humility
41But nations now
42may see His grace
43and know that He is near,
44when His meek heart,
45His words, His works
46are incarnate in us here.

49Oh, what else can I do
50but kneel and worship You
51and come just as I am,
52my whole life an offering.
