1 Down to earth, as a dove,
Came to light holy love:
Jesus Christ from above
Bringing great salvation
Meant for every nation.
Let us sing, sing, sing,
Dance and spring, spring, spring,
Christ is here, Ever near!
Gloria in excelsis.
2 This is love come to light,
Now is fear put to flight.
God defeats darkest night,
Giving for our sorrows
Hope of new tomorrows.
3 Christ the Lord comes to feed
Hungry people in need;
In the house there is bread:
Jesus in a stable,
In the church a table.
