Kings and shepherds make their way
Straight to where a baby lay.
Rich and poor and lonely
Bow before this sight.
A star has led them to this place.
The Word that’s been echoing through space
Becomes a child tonight.
Light to shine in the darkest night,
Light to make all the wrong things right,
Light to show everyone the way,
Light to shine where a virgin lay,
Angel voices fill the air.
Angel wings are everywhere.
Light so bright it’s blinding
Shepherds shake with fright.
A warmth begins to flood the hill
“Fear not! Peace to you – good will
Comes to earth tonight.”
Light will be so bright.
It will shine through the darkest night
Send down Your holy light.
Star of David, the prophet’s star
Yahweh – God come to where we are.
Star to mark the Messiah’s birth.
Star of heaven now touches earth.
