Bethlehem

(after Dr. Craig Carter)

 

A baby cried in Bethlehem

and all creation sang

God’s mighty warrior

as helpless infant born

yet Redeemer of the nations 

had come

 

Israel’s Hope had come!

God’s promised King and Saviour

to Whom shepherds and scholars

would ever bend their knee

had come

 

The world’s Hope had come!

A manger cradled Heaven’s King

yet the eternal Word of God,

calls to all the earth

Come!

Our faithful King and Saviour

to Whom all will bend the knee.

will come

Our Hope will come!
