Lyrics

Our king was born in a manger
(What a contrast)

Text: Steve Okwor
Composer: Arlene Pourroy

Our master was born in a manger.
What a contrast,
Above the Sinai height, a bright star bore
A sign pointing down to a lowly manger
Where Jesus, Son of God, the highest was born.
What a contrast,
In humility Love cast a sign, a sign for you and me.
The least, the least among us, our Master shall be.
What a contrast!

Our king was born in a manger.
What a contrast,
For the Christ-idea, no room in the Inn,
But his eternal dominion was never in danger.
His castle of Spirit was sustained from within.
What a contrast,
At his birth the lowly skipped for joy. And the
Worldly high and mighty shook like reeds in terror.
What a contrast!

Our master was born in a manger,
And the lowly skipped, the mighty shook
At the birth of our master.
Our king was born in a manger,
And the lowly skipped, the mighty shook
At the birth of our king!
