The skies exploded, towers fell;

The floods came rushing down

And many souls were burned alive;

And many souls were drowned

And others set to marching, marching

Far from house and home.

Where are you now, our Savior dear,

When we are all undone?

They God so loved the world so dear

He cast aside His crown

And cloaked Himself in human shape;

They say that He came down,

And dwelt awhile among us here.

He came on down

Oh, I am here among you now

Tho’ I must pass unseen,

And cannot show why this must be

Nor how I walk between

Your souls and greater dangers

Than you have ever known,

To laugh with you and weep with you,

My people, oh my own.

It’s true, I love the World so dear

I cast aside My crown

And cloak Myself in mystery

So I can come on down

And dwell in and among you now.

I come on down.

  1. Sister Mary Ann says:

    What a great day to listen to this dramatic piece! As we celebrate the Feast of Mary’s Immaculate Conception, one cannot but reflect upon the reading from Genesis about our fall into sin; yet in God’s mercy “He came down and dwelt awhile among us here” it is through Mary’s YES that this came to be!
