lyrics

If only that which is assumed could ever be redeemed
Then come to us within a womb, be born and wash our feet
And not our feet alone we pray but everything we know
That thou O Love would come and stay and all our sorrows go

O Love, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us home

Yet thou will not be welcomed here still Love, please come and be
Our refuge, wipe away our tears though we will murder thee
But darkness only turns to day if you become the night
And we on you our darkness lay that it be swallowed in light

O Love, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us home
Oh the sunrise seems so far away
Find us, Child of Bethlehem
Find us here the Son of Man
One winter’s night begins eternal summer morn
If only you are born

The gods we trusted and became will find no solace here
Beside his creatures low and lame the Son of God appears
A thousand years of “progress” past, a million hearts beguiled
Now Love alone will reign and last, within one little child

Blessed One, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us home
Oh the sunrise burns the night away
Find us
Find us
Blessed One, born today come and find us
Search the darkness light the way come and guide us
One winter’s night begins eternal summer morn
If only you are born
