Would I Know My Savior?


Would I Know My Savior?

1. Would I know my Savior wrapped in swaddling bands,
Lying in a manger bed, Light of heaven ’round His head?
Would I hear the angels bend t’ward earth to sing?
Would I know the Holy Child?—Would I know my King?
2. Would I know my Savior safe in Mary’s arms,
Cradled in a lullaby, heaven’s legions watching nigh?
Would I know His goodness? Would I feel His grace?
Would I know the Holy Child if I beheld His face?
3. Would I know my Savior in a lowly stall,
Where the lowing cattle feed, where the silver starlight leads,
Where the humble shepherds seek the Holy One?
Would I hear the Spirit whisper, “This is God’s own Son!”
I think my heart would know Him, Christ, the Holy One,
For I can hear the Spirit whisper, “This is God’s own Son!”
