When you think what you were told

When you think what you were told
does it take your breath away—
how the Saviour of the world
once a tiny infant lay?
Where the sheep and donkey fed
our Redeemer we can see
born this human path to tread
all for love of you and me.

2. Have you heard God’s angels sing
to the shepherds in the night,
and the news they came to bring
from the glorious realms of light?
For a gift of greater worth
never was or yet could be—
grace to sinners, peace on earth
all for love of you and me.

3. When our days are filled with pain,
when dark clouds obscure the road,
when we long for joy again—
let us turn our thoughts to God:
how his only Son was given
on a cross to set us free;
Christ becomes the way to heaven
all for love of you and me!
