The sunrise was beautiful this morning
But somehow it seemed that everything was darker than the sky
We had seen just a few hours ago
As the angels sang a song of joy

Not even the Bethlehem dawn
Could compare to the Light it revealed
Not even the Bethlehem sun
That unveiled the Son of God
Sleeping in a cattle stall
The Almighty God
Humbled to save us all
Not even the Bethlehem dawn

The cry of a baby shatters the silence
Can you believe that same voice makes my heart beat
And the tears in His eyes and in His mother's and father's
Are tears for all mankind

Not even the Bethlehem dawn
Could compare to the Light it revealed
Not even the Bethlehem sun
That unveiled the Son of God
Sleeping in a cattle stall
The Almighty God
Humbled to save us all
Not even the Bethlehem dawn

This little Baby is crying my tears for me
This little Baby is bathing in my shame
This little Baby is giving up His glory
To take my place, to light the way

Not even the Bethlehem dawn
Could compare to the Light it revealed
Not the Jerusalem sun
That unveiled the Son of God
Hanging on a cross
The Almighty God
Dying to save the lost
Can you believe
What He sacrificed for me
On that Bethlehem dawn
