Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Mild He lays His glory by, (Jesus willingly gave up everything to come down to us)
Born that man no more may die ( His birth changed everything! As believers in Christ we slip out of our bodies and go home to Him who waits joyfully to receive us)
Born to raise the sons of earth (our status has changed--our home is in heaven, not in this world)
Born to give them second birth (we are reborn through the Spirit--no longer under law, but under grace--hallelujah!)
Hark! The herald angels sing (can you hear what they're singing?)
"Glory to the newborn King!" (The angels knew better than anyone who He was--King of Kings and Lord of Lords wrapped up in flesh and swaddling clothes.) 
The Glorious One came down that we might share in His glory. Can anyone on earth truly fathom such a gift?
