Star-Child, earth-Child, go-between of God,
love Child, Christ Child, heaven’s lightning rod,
Street child, beat child, no place left to go,
hurt child, used child, no one wants to know,
Grown child, old child, memory 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,
This year, this year, let the day arrive when
Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive!
