Ponder These Things

 Lord of the Heavens
 Seated on the right hand of God
 Four and twenty elders worshipping
 Sing glory and honor and power and might
 To the King of Kings and Lord of Lords
 Exalted above all others
 Since the beginning of time
 Glorious and majestic
 Full of awe and wonder
 All things created by Him
 All things created for Him       
 Beautiful beyond description 
 More precious than silver or gold
 Merciful and gracious
 Longsuffering and full of goodness
 Worthy of all praise
 Son of the most high God
 Holy is He
 King of heaven and earth
 Left His heavenly place
 Left the splendor and the glory
 Left the right hand of God
 Left His Father
 Left His power and authority
 Left His throne
 To come to this earth
 Disrobed of His glory
 Clothed in rags
 A baby in a manger
 No honor bestowed Him
 No welcome of royalty
 But animals in the stable
 A star announcing His birth
 Brightly shines above the city
 Wise men from afar witness the star
 They start their journey
 Angels announcing His birth to shepherds
 Not to kings
 Sing glory to God in the Highest
 Say the Savior, Christ the Lord, has come
 As a babe in as manger
 Beckon the shepherds to go and see
 They come and tell Mary their tale
 And bow before the King of Kings
 Little baby in the hay
 Mary ponders these things in her heart
 We should so ponder these things
 His humility
 His love
 His sacrifice
 All for us
 All for you
 All for me
