1 We would see Jesus; lo! his star is shining,
above the stable while the angels sing;
in manger humble on the hay reclining,
haste, let us lay our gifts before the King.
2 We would see Jesus; Mary's son most holy,
Light of the village life from day to day;
shines revealed through ev'ry task most lowly,
the Christ of God, the Life, the Truth, the Way.
3 We would see Jesus; on the mountain teaching,
with all the list'ning people gathered round;
while birds and flow'rs and sky above are preaching
the blessedness which simple trust has found.
4 We would see Jesus; in his work of healing,
that joyful evening when the sun was set;
divine and human, in his deep revealing
of God made flesh, in loving service meet.
5 We would see Jesus; in the early morning,
still, as of old he calleth, "Follow me";
let us arise, all meaner service scorning;
Lord, we are thine; we give ourselves to thee.
