Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 1)


1. Why must I be reborn again
Into a stable full of pain?
Once in Dachau, now in Darfur?
Always the outcast and the poor?

2. Why are the shepherds cold and wet,
Uncredited or crushed with debt
While inns burst open with excess,
Houses of grief and emptiness.

3. Why do the rulers wise and good
Fail to do what they know they should?
Care less about the distant star
And concentrate on where they are?

4. I will be born again and die
And rise again in victory
Until the final debt is paid
For every soul my Father made.
