When Christmas Comes

1. When Christmas comes it brings great joy;

This story of a baby boy;

The birth of life – divine event

That tells us all of God’s intent

To be at one with human life,

In all its beauty, all its strife.


2. This infant boy of human birth –

A miracle of Mother Earth;

He has announced the Gospel News

That God, unknown, would always choose

To be at one with humankind,

Prompting our love from heart and mind.


3. His humble birth we celebrate;

On Jesus’ love we meditate;

We ponder on the unity

Of God with our humanity;

Emmanuel – Our Christmas song,

In godly love we all belong.


Tune:  The First Nowell
