This baby was born in a stable stall;
‘Twas God’s gift of love and light.
Our deepest problems He can solve;
His torch dispels the night.

Hold high the flame that man may see,
From the stable full of hay.
‘Tis the hope He brought for all the world;
Our night CAN turn to day!

This steady glow continues on,
As it glowed on Mary’s boy.
It touches ev’ry earthly tribe
With peace and lasting joy.

The Scrolls which told of His Holy birth,
Led the Wise Men to prepare.
And we today who see that light,
Will share it everywhere!
