This Child

This child secretly comes in the night
Oh this Child, hiding a heavenly light
Oh this Child, coming to us like a stranger
This heavenly Child

This Child, heaven come down now
To be with us here
Heavenly love and mercy appear
Softly in awe and wonder come near
Oh this heavenly Child

This Child, rising on us like the sun
Oh this child, given to light everyone
Oh this Child, guiding our feet on the pathway
To peace on earth

This Child, raising the humble and poor
Oh this Child, making the proud ones to fall
This Child, filling the hungry with good things
This heavenly Child
