To Those Children Who Need Us

The light of His Star
what we carry
out into the world
to bring to others

To those children who need us
our loving care
going out into the world
to bring it out there

Our call as disciples
believers in Christ
to share His light
to make darkness bright

To offer our gifts
humble, as the Magi
to bring them to Christ
out in the troubled world

Offering hope
the love of God
the grace of our Savior
Oh let it rain down!
