Refugees

Placed in a manger
come to be Saviour.
soon in great danger:
Herod would kill.
God sent a warning
– take them to Egypt,
don’t wait ’til morning,
stay there until …

of Herod’s death told,
‘you can return now’,
(frankincense, myrrh, gold
journeys sustain).
Watched Jesus growing
safe now in Nazareth,
Mary was knowing
one day he’d reign.

Tune: 554D eg Bunessan (Gaeilic melody) tune of ‘Child in the Manger’
