THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD

1.We celebrate the birth
of precious baby Jesus,
the long-foretold Messiah,
the answer to prayer.
How desperately we need
His light to pierce the darkness,
and comfort all the people
who live in despair.

The Light of the World,
the Hope of our hearts,
Good Shepherd,
Redeemer of Israel.
The Light of the World,
the Hope of our hearts,
our Savior, Emmanuel.

2.To Bethlehem He came,
His only bed a manger,
the humblest of beginnings
for this baby boy.
And yet He came to save,
to ransom every sinner,
to heal the brokenhearted,
and lift them to joy.

The Light of the World,
the Hope of our hearts,
Good Shepherd,
Redeemer of Israel.
The Light of the World,
the Hope of our hearts,
our Savior, Emmanuel.

Only Jesus has power to save,
healing sinners and conquering the grave.

The Light of the World,
the Hope of our hearts,
Good Shepherd,
Redeemer of Israel.
The Light of the World,
the Hope of our hearts,
our Savior, Emmanuel.
Our Savior, Emmanuel.
