We do not look for angel choirs

We do not look for angel choirs

or visions in the sky,

but simply pray that peace on earth

comes nearer through the Christ child’s birth:

God’s wisdom laid in straw,

God’s wisdom laid in straw


We do not look for frankincense

or wise ones at our door,

but simply ask our prayers be heard

and that our restless hearts be stirred

by Jesus’ newborn cry, 

by Jesus’ newborn cry.


We will not rest until we know

that God makes all things new;

until our search for answered prayer

transforms the lives of all who dare

to put their trust in you,

to put their trust in you.


But still you send us songs of peace

and wisdom whispers near.

You call us to the way of Christ,

that in our living hope will rise

from Bethlehem to here,

from Bethlehem to here
