In Tune:

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!”
