A frightened virgin teenage girl
Receives a message that defies the laws of this world
All she can do is weep and nod
She's to bring into this world the Son of God

God's angels sound their trumpets
And blow their horns
Tonight the long awaited savior is to be born
The goodness bound by Satan it has been torn
With this baby's precious brow ready for thorns

A star appears fufilling ancient prophecy
There's an ounce of fear as wise men follow faithfully
The Virgin Mary brings forth the human savior
And this future king sleeps soundly in the manger
Soundly in the manger

God's angels sound their trumpets
And blow their horns
Tonight the long awaited savior is to be born
The goodness bound by Satan it has been torn
With this baby's precious brow ready for thorns

Tonight He is born so one day He can die
To heal hearts that are torn and live the perfect life
So He hang upon a cross and we can take His life
So we can live as sinners
And He can pay the price
Tonight He is born so one day he can die
But He will rise again

God's angels sound their trumpets
And blow their horns
Tonight the long awaited savior is to be born
The goodness bound by Satan it has been torn
With this baby's precious brow ready for thorns

    My OpinionI'm not going to be like the people on all the other pages saying "In my point of view, this is about a relationship that was going bad and then they turned it around...etc" because clearly this is about the birth of Jesus Christ. I'm sick of seeing lyrics that are obviously Christian being twisted into a worldly point of view.

    General Commenti love this song because it kind of takes a different point of view, at least for me, about the birth and death of jesus... Lacey sings in the start about virgin mary and her side of view... i never thought about how hard it was for the mother of jesus untill i heard this song...
    also that he was born to die... i never really thought about that before...
    it has given me a whole new view of christianity
