All Mankind Shall See

I saw God’s salvation in a crib

In Hindsford church

The Bambino in the straw

And shepherds gathered round him

Ox and ass there too

Mary and Joseph

I looked on them in awe


So this is God they tell me

Born in poverty

Born as one of us

Long time ago

It looks so very cosy

The mystery of light

Born amidst the darkness

Of the night


I then saw God’s salvation

In a lamp

That spoke of ever present

At my side

And housed in tabernacle

The bread of life for me

Located here

In my locality


I saw God’s salvation

In a story

Stations of the Cross

Around the wall

If this is the love of God

If this is how to live

God grant me grace

For Christmas Cross and all
