same picture, different song

who are you, tiny little baby?
by sharon heldman
{my mother}

who are you, tiny little baby?
high above your head there hangs a flaming star.
who are you, tiny little baby?

are you really who the angels say you are?

are you Wonderful,
are you Counselor,
are you the Mighty God,

the Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace?

who are you, tiny little baby?
are you he whom prophets promised long ago?

who are you, tiny little Baby?
i have left my sheep because i long to know.

are you Immanuel,
are you Messiah,
are you Jesus Christ the Lord?

have you come to save your people from their sin?


why are their nail prints in your hands
and in your tiny feet?

and why the crown of thorns upon your brow?

ah ha! now i know you! you're israel's Messiah!
you are bruised for my iniquity and sin!

i know you, i worship and adore you!

you are the Lamb of God, my King!
come reign within!
