Birthplace of Jesus, by prophets foretold.

Which Magi, on camels, followed from afar.

Sent down to mankind, His great gift of love.

For in us He lives, when in Him we trust..

Obeyed God’s word, with absolute faith.

To show us the way and take us to Heaven.

God’s answer to all, is Jesus the Lord.

Lord, by thy Spirit, to us zeal impart.
