When shepherds heard the angel’s joy,
They went to find that baby boy.
Could they see there in Bethlehem
A friend to outcasts just like them?
When wise men came with gifts to share,
They saw young Jesus playing there.
Could they behold in one so small
God’s gift most precious of them all?
God, make us faithful, humble, wise
To know that Jesus changes lives.
May we be open to the way
That he would change our lives today.
