God is born

Miracle of winter:
God both Son and Father!
Jesus is the child's name.
Mary is his mother.

Tha angels are amazed,
the children are surprised,
the wondrous star is shining,
the whole world is rejoicing,
the shepherds are a-playing and people fall a-praying,
he's here, he's here, he's here, he's here,
the Lord is here!

Mary, Mary, Mary
Sings of this strange story,
Joined by choirs of angels
Chanting in their glory.

Old man Mister Joseph
Rocks the little bundle.
"Lully, lully, Jesus,
Sleep now in your cradle."

Three kings come to find him.
Gifts they lay before him,
Things of wealth and beauty:
Gold and myrrh and perfume.

Happy, humble shepherds
Run to see the baby.
"Greetings, dear King Jesus,
And to God be glory!"

And we too, the faithful,
Greet our Jesus daily,
Praising God who came down,
Born on earth so quietly.

words by Sheena Phillips

based on a translation of the original Ukrainian provided by Vladimir Morozov
