Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 3)

No Child So Wondrous

No child so wondrous as the child
Born on this earth for me;
Whose lowly stable etched our hope
Of perfect liberty.

No lamb so beauteous as the lamb
Which shed its blood for me;
How can a heart attain such joy
Through wordless agony?

No king more glorious than the king
Who reigns in heaven for me,
Whose subjects will be richly blessed
For all eternity.
