563. We Would See Jesus (Park)

1 We would see Jesus; lo! His star is shining
Above the stable while the angels sing;
There in a manger 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;
Shining revealed through every 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,
At eventide before the sun was set;
Divine and human, in His deep revealing
Of God *made flesh, in loving service met.

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
