“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
Born among the peasant strangers
God incarnate came to earth–
Through His poverty bore riches
In the myst’ry of His birth.
God of ev’ry generation
Reaching out to all mankind;
How relentless His pursuing
As He draws us to His light.
From the dawn of all creation
God the Father in His love
Offered up for our redemption
Jesus Christ, His only Son.
Through the heart of all believers
Worship echoes age to age.
Hear the church, her saints proclaiming
Jesus Christ was born to save.
