In the first light of a new day
No one knew He had arrived
Things continued as they had been
While the Newborn softly cried
But the heavens, wrapped in wonder
Knew the meaning of His birth
In the weakness of a baby,
They knew God had come to Earth

As His mother held Him closely
It was hard to understand
That Her baby, not yet speaking,
Was the Word of God to man
He would tell them of His kingdom
But their hearts would not believe
They would hate Him, and in anger
They would nail Him to a tree

But the sadness would be broken
As the Son of life arose
And the Firstborn of creation
Would ascend and take His throne
He had left it to redeem us
But before His life began
He knew He'd come back, not as a baby
But as the Lord of every man

Hear the angels as they're singing
On the morning of His birth
But how much greater will our song be
When He comes again, when He comes again
Hear the angels as they're singing
On the morning of His birth
But how much greater will our song be
When He comes again to Earth

When He comes to...

(Said the king to the people everywhere:
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people everywhere)
And listen to what I say
A child, a child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

A child, a child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
(He will bring) When He comes
(Us goodness) To the Earth
(He will bring us goodness and light)
