Star-Child, earth-Child,
       go-between of God,
       love Child, Christ Child,
heaven's lightning rod,

Refrain:  This year, this year,
       let the day arrive
       when Christmas comes for everyone,
       everyone alive!

Street child, beat child,
       no place left to go,
       hurt child, used child
no one wants to know,

Grown child, old child,
       mem'ry full of years,
       sad child, lost child,
story told in tears,

Spared child, spoiled child,
       having, wanting more,
       wise child, faith child,
knowing joy in store,

Hope-for-peace Child,
       God's stupendous sign,
       down-to-earth Child,
Star of stars that shine,
