The light came forth in darkness, so many years ago.
And shone upon the Son of God, in humble manger low.
He could have come in glory, with angels at His side,
Humility He chose instead, when with us He’d abide.
Oh, sweet and loving Jesus. You came to give us life.
You promised to be with us in all our earthly strife.
You walked alone to Calvary and hung upon a tree –
You suffered pain and shed your blood. You did it all for me.
You rose from death to give me life, the ransom you did pay
No longer in the grip of sin, I now with sureness pray.
How can I thank you, Jesus, for bringing me Your light?
Use me and let me praise you, through all Your Holy might!
