The Water is Wide: Christmas words!
Thank you for a great site
with lots of ideas ...
I'll be coming back often!
My choir sings an arrangement
of "The Water is Wide" with the
following words at Christmas:
When Love Was Born
(Tune: The Water is Wide)
1. When love was born so long ago, God sent a Child to earth below;
To men He came, humble and poor, so innocent, sinless and pure.
2. And in that birth of God’s own Son, a work of love was there begun;
He came to us that we might find peace on earth for all mankind.
3. The years have passed and still today each looks for love in his own way;
Some seek in vain, sad and forlorn, remembering not how love was born.
4. Yes, love was born so long ago; yet, here today it can bestow
A joy complete, not just a part, when Christ is born within each heart,
When Christ is born within each heart.
