10970. Let Us Go To Bethlehem

1 Let us go to Bethlehem;
There the King of Glory lies!
He has left His diadem,
And His throne beyond the skies!
He, the Lord of endless years,
Now a feeble babe appears.

2 Let us go to Bethlehem:
God descends with men to dwell!
And He comes not to condemn,
But to save from sin and hell:
Oh, what rich and boundless grace,
To our lost and guilty race!

3 Let us go to Bethlehem:
Eastern magi worship there;
Let us strive to rival them,
With the incense of our prayer;
And our hearts, as offerings bring,
To the glorious new-born King.
