Love laid bare in a manger;
God is there, not a stranger.
This miracle child,
so peaceful and mild,
born to bring God’s love to all the world.

Angels sing: Alleluia!
Telling of God’s new ruler:
How one little birth
gave hope to the earth;
Born to bring God’s love to all the world.

Refrain

In the future he’ll return in glory,
Jesus Christ will come again one day –
Bring the perfect ending to the story,
But until then let’s follow in his way.

Wise men came: celebrations!
Now they come from all nations,
To kneel and adore
At his stable door –
Born to bring God’s love to all the world.

Trumpets blast, are you hearing?
Night is past; day is nearing:
Forgiveness and love;
The Light from above,
born to bring God’s love to all the world.

Refrain

In the future he’ll return in glory,
Jesus Christ will come again one day –
Bring the perfect ending to the story,
But until then let’s follow in his way.

Love laid bare in a manger;
God is there, not a stranger.
This miracle child,
so peaceful and mild,
born to bring God’s love to all the world...
