Jesus came, a child like me,
so the face of God I’d see,
God is not left far away,
God is with us every day.

Jesus came to show us all
ways to answer our God’s call
came to show us how to share,
came to live with God’s own care.

Jesus came God’s work to do,
came to live in me and you,
came to turn the world around
till God’s peace and love are found.

Jesus came to show God’s face,
live God’s love, and be God’s grace.
God lives now in me, in you,
God’s at work in what we do.

Live, Jesus, near us,
live, Jesus, with us,
live, Jesus, in us,
come live in us today.
