On That Dark Night
In a stone-cold cradle
God laid His head
At the mercy of hands 
That would someday
Be covered in His blood.
But on that dark night
When He cried out
The arms of His mother
Held Him to her breast
And fed Him her love.

It is faith 
When we put our lives
In the hands of God,
Trusting He's in control
For all eternity.
But it is love
When God puts His life
In our hands,
Knowing only true love
Begins in vulnerability.
