welcome to our world

Tears are falling
Hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You've been promised
We've been waiting
Welcome, Holy Child
Welcome, Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would've known
But long awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please, make Yourself at home

Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
World now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God, Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

One of my favorites, and I had it sung at the Christmas eve service.

(by the way, contrary to the lyric websites, I'm quite sure that the 15th line starts with "Word" not "World")
