A common scene, a common day,
He comes again to praise and pray,
No angel vision seen or heard,
But just the Spirit’s whispered word –
Just His word.

The Child arrives, and all is clear:
The Light of all the World is here!
The faithful God has kept His vow.
The long-awaited time is now,
Here and now!

God’s people and the Child now one,
They give God back His firstborn Son.
Salvation turns on this one Child,
By some adored, by some reviled –
God reviled!

Those near to Him embrace His ways
And share with joy the price He pays;
For here, in Him, the truth is clear:
The promises of God are here –
Christ is here!
