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

The King of Israel is born

Unto a world that is sinful and torn

He came for Israel’s lost sheep

But their old ways they’d rather keep

Many miracles He did perform

The Pharisees treated Him with scorn

He healed the sick and the lame

The blind got to see without shame

He had love for all that were lost

His love got Him hung on a cross

Or was it sin that put Him upon that tree

The broken He came to set free

He rose from the grave on the third day

It’s to Him we are thankful we pray

The world is still broken and lost

I am thankful that He hung on that cross

He still comes for all that are broken

His love is what we find hope in
