In Days of Old
1. If I had lived in days of old, when Christ was born on earth,
Would I have looked and seen the star and known His humble birth?
Suppose I had been one of those who heard the angels sing,
And hurried to the manger bed to worship Christ, my King?
2. I wonder if I had been there when He was crucified—
Would I have known His love for me and with His mother cried?
But in three days, would I have seen and known He was not dead?
He from the grave triumphant rose, my ever-living Head.
3. The Holy Spirit testifies to me that He is real.
I need not see, I need not touch, for in my heart I feel.
I want to serve, I want to give; obey His ev’ry word.
For He has given all for me, my Saviour, and my Lord.
