Lyrics:
1.  Down to earth, as a dove,
    Came to light holy love:
    Jesus Christ from above
    Bringing great salvation
    Meant for every nation.
    Let us sing, sing, sing,
    Dance and spring, spring, spring,
    Christ is here, Ever near!
    Gloria in excelsis.

2.  This is love come to light,
    Now is fear put to flight.
    God defeats darkest night,
    Giving for our sorrows 
    Hope of new tomorrows.
    Let us sing, sing, sing,
    Dance and spring, spring, spring,
    Christ is here, Ever near!
    Gloria in excelsis.

3.  Christ the Lord comes to feed
    Hungry people in need;
    In the house there is bread:
    Jesus in a stable,
    In the church a table.
    Let us sing, sing, sing,
    Dance and spring, spring, spring,
    Christ is here, Ever near!
    Gloria in excelsis.
