It has a 6/8 tune.
Is it better than before?
No Title Yet (If a title doesn't jump out the lyric is generally in trouble.)
Hope of the ages, light of the world
Born a baby in the darkness.
Into the silence, God speaks his word
And the sky alights with glory!
This the day
All the prophets longed to see
God our God
Writes himself in history
How can a stable house this new king?
Could the whole of earth contain him?
Hills bow before him, rocks rise and sing!
Let the nations come and worship.
Child of dust
fall before his manger throne.
Bow in awe
This your God and he alone.
Privileged creation! No other world
Could dream of such an honour.
Safe as a fortress, strong and secure
For God himself is in her!
Christ our light
Living here, his home with us!
Showing all the father’s love!
