LSB 372 O Jesus Christ, Thy Manger is

LSB 372 O Jesus Christ, Thy Manger Is

5   Remember thou
     What glory now
     The Lord prepared thee for all earthly sadness.
     The angel host
     Can never boast
     Of greater glory, greater bliss or gladness.

6   The world may hold
     Her wealth and gold;
     But thou, my heart, keep Christ as thy true treasure.
     To Him hold fast
     Until at last
     A crown be thine and honor in full measure.

Matthew 1:21-23
She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”
             (which means, God with us).

John 1:1-3 
The Word Became Flesh
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.

Matthew 8:23-27 
Jesus Calms a Storm
When [Jesus] got into the boat, his disciples followed him. 
And behold, there arose a great storm on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves; but he was asleep. And they went and woke him, saying, “Save us, Lord; we are perishing.” And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O you of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?”

John 17:23

I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. 

Romans 8:18 
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
