Suggested Tune ST. DENIO (11 11.11 11.) Welsh Hymn Melody
1. The angels came singing from clouds up above;
the bright star a spotlight on our Prince of Love -
how awesome to think what it must have been like
to be in that stable on that holy night.
2. But even more awesome will be that great hour
when You will return on the clouds in Your pow'r,
when stars will fall down from a sky dark as night,
in which neither sun nor the moon will give light.
3. Though earth, sea and sky shake when you will return,
We tremble NOT - we know your pure light will burn
for all who belong to the fam'ly of God,
for all you've kept true till the Day of the Lord.
4. O Lord God, shine on us, and keep us all strong,
The time may be short, or the time may be long,
We can't know the hour, no, we can't know the day,
but from now till then, Lord, we're living your way!
