CRADLE TO CROSS
What hope is there for a sinner lost?
Only the hope this Child does bring…
The hope of the world comes from
Christ our Lord, merciful King.
In Bethlehem-town quiet and calm
In the heavens a star shone bright…
Then sang angels in a round
Praises to the Lord of Light.
In drafty stable a Child was born
Who’d become our One salvation…
What a lowly birth for the King of all,
Over every tribe and nation!
He was born our sacrifice
From cradle to cross for thee…
Blood and death were sin’s price
He paid so we could live free.
