Micah 6:8

Thank you Major Ray Harris for these wonderful lyrics to the tune of O Little Town of Bethlehem!

What does the Lord require of us,
Who know God’s lavish grace,
Who know his gift unspeakable,
Born for the human race?
Raise people’s dignity
Make visible God’s righteousness,
This is the manger’s way.

What does the Lord require of us,
Who know God’s promise kept,
Who know the child of Bethlehem,
Fulfillment of his word?
Love, kindness and show mercy,
Embody loyalty,
Make visible God’s faithfulness,
This is the manger’s way.

What does the Lord require of us,
Who know nativity,
Who know the child Emmanuel,
God in humility,
Walk humbly with your God,
Trust him from day to day,
Make visible God’s hopefulness,
This is the manger’s way.

Major Ray Harris 2008
