1.	We would see Jesus; lo! his star is shining 
	above the stable while the angels sing; 
	there in a manger on the hay reclining; 
	haste, let us lay our gifts before the King.

2.	We would see Jesus, Mary's son most holy, 
	light of the village life from day to day; 
	shining revealed through every task most lowly, 
	the Christ of God, the life, the truth, the way.

3.	We would see Jesus, on the mountain teaching, 
	with all the listening people gathered round; 
	while birds and flowers and sky above are preaching 
	the blessedness which simple trust has found.

4.	We would see Jesus, in his work of healing, 
	at eventide before the sun was set; 
	divine and human, in his deep revealing 
	of God made flesh, in loving service met.

5.	We would see Jesus, in the early morning, 
	still as of old he calleth, "Follow me!" 
	Let us arise, all meaner service scorning; 
	Lord, we are thine, we give ourselves to thee.
