The birth of our Saviour, Shepherd of delight
Was told in the skies one starry night
By hosts from heaven, angels of glory
Speaking the beginning of an unending story

Within our Messiah, this baby boy
Was the kingdom of God – peace and joy
Bringing us hope and setting His standard
This banner of love to us would be handed

Behold what manner of love is this
Bestowed on us by the Saviour’s kiss
Children of God we could now become
As later at the Cross all would be done

Explosive power came flowing in
As Jesus conquered all our sin
Making us know deep and full remorse
This repentance becoming a creative force

Awakened now to bless-ed Holy Spirit
Guided from the heart to know no limit
In shining our light before all men
Glorifying the Father, in Christ… Amen!
