May be sung to the tune O Come, O Come Emmanuel

1. Before creation was the Word,
this Word was the same as God;
through him was all creation made,
through him was the whole world to be saved.

Refrain:
Behold the light has come to earth,
rejoice now at our Redeemer’s birth!

2. The Word was the source of life,
his life brought light to all mankind.
He shines in the darkest night,
and darkness cannot quench his light.

Refrain:
Behold the light has come to earth,
rejoice now at our Redeemer’s birth!

3. And though he had the nature of God,
by his free will he gave up all he had;
although a king he chose to live
in humbleness his life to give.

Refrain:
Behold the light has come to earth,
rejoice now at our Redeemer’s birth!

4. And so all earth and heaven proclaim
all honor, glory to his name;
before the throne of God we sing
all praise to Jesus Christ our King!

Refrain
Behold the light has come to earth,
rejoice now at our Redeemer’s birth!

I should have done something like this! I'm not familiar withe tunem, but I thought the words were wonderful.

One of my favorite melodies, in its haunting, minor key, and your new words to it do it justice. Well done.

Words and message well thought out. Nice flow. Good job. :)

I am slightly familiar with the tune, but could not carry it. I'm all thumbs I think. Anyway, I thought the poetry in this song was powerful.
