Love Came Down

This entire Advent season, I have been reflecting on the “reason for the season.” Why did God send his Son to heal the contrite? Why did Jesus come to call sinners? What did we do to merit such a wonderful gift? The answer is simple: We did nothing; God did it all … for us!

The phrase that kept running through my head as I reflected and prayed was “Love Came Down.” I’ve taken that phrase and written a song we will debut at the Life Teen Mass on the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord, Sunday, January 2. Here are the lyrics to the song:

LOVE CAME DOWN

Love came down
And hope was renewed
A new joy was found when
Love came down
To dwell among the lost and the lonely
To lead us to the one and the only truth
That’s why Love came down

In the fullness of time, in the stillness of night
Over Bethlehem, a bright and glorious light
From this humble place, with no crown for his head
Our Savior-God brings hope to those once dead

Love came down
And hope was renewed
A new joy was found when
Love came down
To dwell among the lost and the lonely
To lead us to the one and the only truth
That’s why Love came down

Let us worship him. Let us give him praise
Heaven’s only Son; let all creation sing!
Let us bring our gifts to the one who saves
Let us celebrate; sing glory to His name!

Sing glory. O sing glory.
Sing glory to his name!
Sing glory. O sing glory.
Sing glory to his name!

Love came down
And hope was renewed
A new joy was found when
Love came down
To dwell among the lost and the lonely
To lead us to the one and the only truth
That’s why Love came down

To lead us home again
That’s why Love came down

Merry Christmas!
