Bethlehem Summons



Tiny gift of love supernal,
shepherd of our souls eternal;
summon saints to heed the call
to share His birth with one and all.
And full surrender, grant it so
whereby we steadfast, surely grow.
Mature the young and wounded saints
who too oft drink where sin doth taint.
Deliver hearts of hardened places,
to tenderness and pardon?s graces.
Let servants rise and pride will fall
as Christians heed the infant?s call.
Journey there to kneel, to know
this friend who made the stable glow.
Be reverent and earnest there
to meet your Maker, humbled…fair.
Hear the summons, know His glory
let the manger tell the story:
where God and man were reconciled
and death fell conquered by a child.
