Child of Christmas Story

Child of Christmas story,
       stable straw and star,
small and sweet and gentle,
       tell us who you are.

Child whose baby finger
       round our own is curled,
come to melt our hearts,
       and come to change the world.

Child of Jew and gentile,
       child of white and black,
teach us how to love you,
       teach us what we lack.

Child of Mary's courage,
       birthed in human pain,
tell us what your name is,
       be our hope again.
