Come and Stand Amazed: A Christmas Greeting from RMM

As Christmas approaches and 2014 comes to a close, we “stand amazed” at the beautiful, life-changing work God has done this year...

Come and Stand Amazed

Come and stand amazed, you people,
See how God is reconciled!
See his plans of love accomplished,
See his gift, this newborn child.
See the Mighty, weak and tender,
See the Word who now is mute.
See the Sovereign without splendor,
See the Fullness destitute.

O Lord Jesus, God incarnate,
Who assumed this humble form,
Counsel me and let my wishes
To your perfect will conform.
Light of life, dispel my darkness,
Let your frailty strengthen me;
Let your meekness give me boldness,
Let your burden set me free;

O Emmanuel, my savior
Let your death be life for me
