New Hymn: Tomorrow Christ is coming

(See below for suggested tunes)

Tomorrow Christ is coming
as yesterday he came;
a child is born this moment—
we do not know its name.
The world is full of darkness,
again there is no room;
the symbols of existence
are stable, cross and tomb.

Tomorrow will be Christmas,
the feast of love divine,
but for the nameless millions
the star will never shine.
Still is the census taken
with people on the move;
new infants born in stables
are crying out for love.

There will be no tomorrows
for many a baby born.
Good Friday falls on Christmas
when life is sown as corn.
But Jesus Christ is risen
and comes again in bread
to still our deepest hunger
and raise us from the dead.

Our God becomes incarnate
in every human birth.
Created in God’s image,
we must make peace on earth.
God will fulfill Love’s purpose
and this shall be the sign:
we shall find Christ among us
as woman, child or man.
