“I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in Me may not remain in darkness.” – John 12:46

God of Every Generation

Verse 1:
Born among the peasant strangers
God incarnate came to earth–
Through His poverty bore riches
In the myst’ry of His birth.

Chorus:
God of ev’ry generation
Reaching out to all mankind;
How relentless His pursuing
As He draws us to His light.

Verse 2:
From the dawn of all creation
God the Father in His love
Offered up for our redemption
Jesus Christ, His only Son.

Chorus

Verse 3:
Through the heart of all believers
Worship echoes age to age.
Hear the church, her saints proclaiming
Jesus Christ was born to save.

Chorus
