Good Gifts*

O, Child of Peace, across this night,
Within our hearts is all made right. 
The pow’r of sin is crumbling fast,
As we are freed from prisons past. 
In darkness, cold, our hearts knew pain,
Forever deep, the crimson stain. 
But kingdoms fall, our fears release. 
For, You have come, O Child of Peace. 

O, Newborn Gift, the Father’s Son, 
Your presence here enfolds us, one.
Together, bound, we share the joy
You bring to earth as one, small boy.
For, since in love you’ll grow to be
Your Father’s Lamb because of me,
Your mercy rich will make me new:
A son of God because of You.

From star to star in heaven’s space 
A song rings out: a song of grace. 
Your music starts where sin begins.
It wakes the dead and never ends.
Our silent lives have never heard 
Until tonight this healing Word.  
O, may this music never cease!
Sing on, O Son, my Prince of Peace.

* To the tune, BANIAS, LMD
