1 One day an angel here on this earth
spoke of God's presence coming to birth.
Mary was listening; humbly her heart
sang at the Word God chose to impart.
2 Mary gave birth in Bethlehem's cave,
blessed by the child God chose her to have.
Love was the reason God had become
close to his mother, far from her home.
3 Out in the fields a heavenly throng
broke through the dark with resonant song.
Shepherds, who saw God's glory by night,
sped on their way to worship the Light.
4 Jesus, your Spirit, shining with care,
speaks to the world you treasure and share.
Come with the human touch of your birth;
find in our hearts your home on this earth.
