1 Born in the night, Mary's child,
a long way from your home:
coming in need, Mary's child,
born in a borrowed room.
2 Clear shining light, Mary's child,
your face lights up our way;
light of the world, Mary's child,
dawn on our darkened day.
3 Truth of our life, Mary's child,
you tell us God is good;
prove it is true, Mary's child.
Go to your cross of wood.
4 Hope of the world, Mary's child,
you're coming soon to reign;
king of the earth, Mary's child,
walk in our streets again.
