Thou, the Answer

War and bloodshed, death, despair,
Deep, depressive world of care,
Sordid darkness, choking night,
Sinking downwards without light.

Light of Heaven, shine below,
Through the darkness send Thy glow.
Let the needy world perceive
Thou, the answer to their need.

Thou, a baby – fragile small
Came to give your life, your all.
God an infant, can it be,
He would leave His heaven for me?

Reaching out, not to condemn,
Ah, the love poured out to men
That the Son of God should die;
Rise, man’s soul to justify!
