He came to us in the night 
born in a stable, long ago, 
with only the stars for light 
a sign of heaven's glow; 
wrapped in a blanket 
and warmed by love 
he became a sign 
of God's descending dove. 

He came to teach 
of a new word of God, 
one of mercy and of love 
and with a promise from above, 
He healed the sick 
and cured the lame 
gave sight to the blind 
and raised the dead; 
He was the Son of God, 
the one true Lamb, 
sent to us all 
from that night in a stall. 

Jesus was his name, 
Immanuel - God with us, 
the Prince of Peace; 
but a jealous and frightened few 
incited the people into a stew 
and beat and tormented him 
and nailed him to a tree, 
so he died without any blame 
that we might be free of our shame; 
but, God raised him from the dead 
and overcame all strife 
that we in turn might have eternal life.
