Life is hard
fear is deep
no one sheltered
the world never sleeps

Christ came on Christmas
fear not the angel said
God has come to His people
no more dread

Stop all of your cringing
not me you say
any number of conditions
will make you cry today

Christ came to people
especially those unloved
His love changes us
each and every day

A new heart
a new life
peace like a river
fear no longer has a place

Rejoice and sing
to the newborn king
Christ is here
He has come to you
