Bombs and brick barrage the people of Aleppo
At home we sit in comfort far from any terror
The bloodshed overseas is like a foreign echo
We hear their cries but we wait and give no answer

Swords and soldiers searched for little baby Jesus
So away the new family fled to Egypt’s land
A refugee seeking rest Christ was GOD WITH US
Infant Jesus reaches out to those who cannot stand

A voice A voice cries out to tell us of God’s will
A voice A voice cries out to us to give them aid
To say NO MORE help them against all those who kill
Will we stand or give in to fear and be afraid

In Egypt a child entered not barred by any wall
Will we wait or act will we show God’s love to all
