It was is in the wee hours of a star lit night
Wise men were guided by a star so bright
They were following what the prophets foretold
Bringing with them myrrh, frankincense, and gold
They were gifts for the new born king
The child of which the angels did sing
Conceived by God’s Spirit not by a man
Born of a virgin for this was God’s plan
Sent from God this child sublime
Redemption came from this perfect paradigm
This child came with a message that He must tell
His message of redemption that saves us from hell
This message of redemption we all must hear
Oh Holy Spirit come open our ears
Open our hearts to receive God’s Word
The message of Christ is the message we heard
The Son of God is King at birth
His message is told throughout the earth
If you’re in need of hope on Christmas this year
It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear
