VERSE 1:
Joy has dawned upon the world
Promised from creation
God's salvation now unfurled
Hope for every nation
Not with fanfare from above
Not with scenes of glory
But a humble gift of love
Jesus born of Mary

VERSE 2:
Sounds of wonder fill the sky
With the songs of angels
As the mighty Prince of life
Shelters in a stable
Hands that set each star in place
Shaped the earth in darkness
Cling now to a mother's breast
Vuln'rable and helpless

VERSE 3:
Shepherds bow before the lamb
Gazing at the glory
Gifts of men from distant lands
Prophesy a story
Gold, a King is born today
Incense, God is with us
Myrrh, His death will make a way
And by His blood He'll win us

VERSE 4:
Son of Adam, Son of Heav'n
Given as a ransom
Reconciling God and man
Christ, our mighty champion

What a Savior, what a Friend
What a glorious myst'ry
Once a babe in Bethlehem
Now the Lord of hist'ry
