God, come with light this holy night
That we may worship Thee aright.
God, give our world new stars of hope
To light the way in which we grope.
God, grant anew to weak and strong
Sure messages of angels’ song.
Let wise men find the manger still
To bring Thee heart and mind and will.
Move on this world in hearts of men,
That all may find the Christ again,
Not manger-held, nor manger-bound,
But waiting still where love is found.
And oh, dear God, make us aware
Through Christ how great Thy loving care.
