Bethlehem–the Cradle of Love

Bethlehem cradled the baby in Mary’s womb

He became our Savior, risen from the tomb–

He came…

to save the lost. 

.

Gethsemane’s anguish pressed its clutch

His Father’s heart, He surely touched–

He paid…

the ultimate cost.

.

Nazareth succored a carpenter’s son

To a wooden cross, His onus done–

He ransomed us…

from all our sins.

.

Heavenly hosts descended below

He would be raised up, God’s will to show–

He is the Lamb…

our offerings.

.

O come, Emmanuel, this holy day

Bless our Nativity Feast we pray–

He is lifted up…

God’s priceless love. 

.

Little holy Child, our King of Kings

Release Your love, of which we sing–

Oh sing…

on earth and heaven above!
