lyrics

Come Christmas (Davis/Coleman)

Come Christmas - in a barn
Come Christmas – in a shed
A basement a box - a cell heavy locks
A tunnel - a trench - razor wire
Heavy fire

Come Christmas – on a bench
Come Christmas – a hospital tent
Beneath the star – outside a bar
Behind a tree by the river
You are delivered

Come Christmas – across the sea
Come Christmas – where have you been?
O come little light – you swell up so bright
Lift up the hearts of the mothers
And every lover

Love irrepressible burst through the black
Kaleidoscopic flowers grow where burning bridges crack
Wonderful dawning – child of the morning
Our holy family has delivered
We’ve crossed the river

Love irrepressible - wellspring of light
Come now - illuminate this dark
Wonderful dawning – child of the morning
Our holy family has delivered
We’ve crossed the river
Come Christmas … come Christmas
Come Christmas … come Christmas

from “Love Irrepressible” – Noel Davis
From the Wilds of the Heart 2003 p81
