I wanted to share with you a lesser known Hymn written by Martin Luther. Luther wrote many Hymns and actually penned this one for children.Our little Lord, we give thee praise That thou hast deigned to take our ways. Born of a maid a man to be, And all the angels sing to thee. The eternal Father’s Son he lay Cradled in a crib of hay. The everlasting God appears In our frail flesh and blood and tears. What the globe could not enwrap Nestled lies in Mary’s lap. Just a baby, very wee, Yet the Lord of all the world is he.
This Hymn was taken from Daniel Hyde’s excellent book, God With Us.
