Miracles at the Birth of Christ

Isaac Watts’s poem: Hymn 2:136 [The King Of Glory Sends His Son]

The King of Glory sends his Son
To make his entrance on this earth!
Behold the midnight bright as noon,
And heavenly hosts declare his birth!

About the young Redeemer’s head
What wonders and what glories meet!
An unknown star arose, and led
The eastern sages to his feet.

Simeon and Anna both conspire
The Infant-Saviour to proclaim;
Inward they felt the sacred fire,
And bless’d the babe, and own’d his Name.

Let Jews and Greeks blaspheme aloud,
And treat the holy Child with scorn;
Our souls adore th’ eternal God
Who condescended to be born.
