This is the Savior of the World
All the world has heard the story
of the little Christ Child's birth.
But too few have felt the meaning
of His mission here on earth.
Some regard the Christmas story
as something beautiful to hear,
A lovely Christmas custom
that we celebrate each year,
But it is more than just a story
told to make our hearts rejoice
It's our Father up in heaven
speaking through the Christ Child's voice,
Telling us of heavenly kingdoms
that He has prepared above
For all who trust His mercy
and live only for His love...
And only through the Christ Child
can man be born again,
For God sent the Baby Jesus
as the Savior of all men.
