there's a bright star hanging over bethlehem
i was overjoyed so i called to my friends
we crossed rivers, deserts, and mountains
just to be with you

take the census as a symbol of my faith
how can i explain how long i've had to wait?
you're the only gift i've ever wanted
how did you know?

on the day you were born
the sky was open as it has been before
an angel sang on high
we all have hope

i've got 30 silver pieces in my hands
at the table where you called out to our friends
someone here betrays me in the end
but i will be with you

we took bread and wine as symbols of your faith
how could you explain how long you had to wait?
washed my feet, i kissed you on the cheek
how did you know?

on the day you died
the sky was open, and it was black as night
and you raised your last voice
i give you hope

glorious
it's glorious
glorious
glorious

by your grace i am a wiseman bearing gifts for you
by your grace i have been judas and turned my back on you
by your grace there's never any guilt, now, there's only love

on the day you rose
our hearts were open as they had been before
go and tell the world
i give you hope

it was glorious
glorious
glorious
glorious

you're the gift that i have always wanted
how did you know?
you're the gift that i have always wanted
how did you know?
