Hope was born in Bethlehem
by James Cucinella

Hope was born in Bethlehem
as angels sang their joy,
For God was born in Bethlehem,
wrapped in a little boy.

Faith was born in Bethlehem
as wisemen looked to see
More than a babe in Bethlehem,
the King that he would be.

Love was born in Bethlehem,
love with hands and feet;
The shepherds came to Bethlehem
the Lord of love to greet.

Trumpets sound! Angels sing!
Welcome Christmas morn!
For hope and faith and love today
in Christ our Lord was born.
