Days of wrath, I have seen, now over me
Gone loathsome rains of weeping, after dawn
Should I fall, in praise I’d rise like kids – found
Glory in God’s kindness of boundless seas.
From dark days of doom and cyclone, now free
Gathered silk fields, fire, water , nothing owned
A heaven’s grace, in faith, I pray no bounds
Erect stone monuments like pliant trees!
A Savior is born, rejoice and sing praise!
Hope of today, a blessed light unveiled
Born a Savior, redeems us, human race.
A Savior is born, doubt not, see thy might
In chaos and wars, he saves in the right
Hope of today, a blessed light unveiled!
