If You had never come, although You made the world, my Lord
What would this world now be without the Babe
Who lived and died and rose again in triumph
So fallen man could lift his head; be saved?
Even as You look upon us with love and mercy
The world is torn apart with fear and hate
We cannot raise the world from satan’s dominance
Unless the Cross of Christ be held and raised.
So are we different from those that don’t acknowledge You?
Do we show love, the love of God for man?
Or do we in fear and judgment walk across the road
And leave a few to be good Samaritans?
Lord, lift up to us the glass that shows us what we are
May we see You in every hurting soul
Then shine Your light of truth, Great Holy Spirit
Till our obedience may make others whole.
