Not Just a Babe

.
Not just a babe born
   who is Christ the Lord
       did God's heavenly host
           of angels so eagerly herald.

Not just a mere war to be
   waged by a Savior divine
       did God's heavenly host
           of angels so boldly declare.

But a final victory over sin
   by the Son of God Most High
       did God's vast heavenly host
           of angels so gloriously proclaim.*
 

Luke 2: 1-14

*host: a Hebrew term used to describe an
army encampment

Matthew 26:53: military wording to describe
angels' readiness by legion to protect and
fight for Jesus
