Come down

Love's song came down,
  for us to share
In a manger cold and bare,
  shepherds came
To witness, showing us
  the way of love
We didn't want to hear
  the lovely song
Instead we silence,
  silence still
    until

The heavens open,
  hope arrives
Young, fresh, anew
  we hear the song
Again in hearts opened
  longing for the
Newborn day we live
  the songs refrain

Share the love of Christmas
  peace, goodwill to all
Sing the song in all the
  dark forgotten places
Carry the torch, bright
  burning desire to be
Known in the hearts
  of those who lost
    hope
