353. Earth gave him no welcome

Author: Margaret Clarkson 1915 – 2008

Earth gave him no welcome,
no shelter, no home;
he slept in a stable,
the inn had no room;
no bed but a manger,
no pillow but hay,
no friends but the oxen
who watched where he lay.

2. To seek and to rescue
the dying and lost,
he came to save sinners
at infinite cost:
despised and rejected,
forsaken was he;
earth gave him no welcome
but Calvary’s tree.

3. Earth gave him no welcome:
sin’s night has been long;
but soon comes God’s morning
all glorious with song:
then earth shall not see him
rejected again;
triumphant in glory
her King comes to reign!
