Love in a Manger

God intervened
His Spirit acted
Mary submitted
Christ was born
God's Love in a Manger.

Angels announced
Shepherds beheld
Joseph marveled
Mary adored
Her Love in a Manger.

Because God cared
Jesus obeyed
God came down
Word made flesh
As Love in a Manger.

From that crib
To a cruel death
Our Saviour went
To redeem our souls
By Love on a Cross.

Because He became
Love in a Manger
And rose from the dead
Christ demonstrates
Love everlasting
