Hope Was Born

JAMES P LONG

 
 

On a quiet night, in darkened days,

When hope was a dream fading from thought,

Angels stirred in a starry sky

And all at once hope was born.


Who could imagine God as a child,

Infant Creator nurtured and held?

Fathomless, eternal wonder!

Yet all at once hope was born.


Immanuel, God with us!

We are never forsaken,

We are never alone.

Immanuel, God with us!

Hope was born in him.


The years slip away, centuries pass;

What can diminish that newborn’s touch?

One still night and everything changed

When once for all hope was born.


Immanuel, God with us!

We are never forsaken,

We are never alone.

Immanuel, God with us!

Hope was born in him.

We fix our eyes

not on what is seen,

but on what is unseen.

For what is seen

is temporary;

but what is unseen

is eternal.
