The Son of God
Has Come Down

The Son of God has come down
Christmas time is here.

The Son of God is born today
in a wooden manger
bundled up in swaddling clothes
and away from danger.

Mary and Joseph quietly
watch over the baby
bundled up in swaddling clothes
in the arms of Mary.
The star shines so brightly in the sky.
People all over follow the star
to see the God almighty.
