Christmas Carol 2005

Metre: 66 77 55Tune: Stille Nacht

Deep in our night God touches earth;
Mary’s child shares our birth.
Grace and peace bring us a new start
Beating in this little one’s heart:
Mystery shines in the dark,
Mystery shines in the dark.

Powerless and small, God’s human form
Meets us all in life’s storm;
Here the hope of every age
Risks his life in history’s page:
Dust to glory is born,
Dust to glory is born.

When we feel lost, God in his Word
Speaks in Christ – suffering’s heard.
Holy child revealing God’s might
In the dark of human night.
Jesus – Light of the World!
Jesus – Light of the World!
