We pray that round the world there’ll be
a Christmas where we can be free
to celebrate our Saviour’s birth,
with prayers of thanks throughout the earth.
In our home land we’ll meet as one
under blue skies warmed by the sun;
it’s been so long since we could meet
with other families there to greet.
We pray a vaccine soon is found
with people free to move around;
throughout the world our prayers we send
to you great healer and our friend.
Oh loving God to you we raise
our hymns of never ending praise,
and as our prayers ascend to you,
you’ll send your love forever true.
So thank you for our Christmas gift
the Christ child came to heal the rift;
there was no greater gift to give,
our Saviour who’ll forever live.
