A Child is Born
The baby Jesus lay in the manger. Mary was resting nearby.
Joseph stood watching for any sign of danger
The flock stood silently by.
The star overhead brightly shone to guide those who would come seeking Him
To this lowly birthplace they called home and the tiny child that lay sleeping within.
The three wise men appeared bearing gifts for this Savior, this Messiah, this King.
For they knew this child they sought would, one day, their salvation bring.
Twas a night like never before. No other time could ever compare
To the miracle that lay before them and the Joy they all would, one day, share
This tiny baby, asleep in the manger. Swaddled and lying in the hay
Fulfilled all the scriptures written of Him. Fulfilled all the promises God had made
Of a Redeemer, a Savior, the Messiah. The one true King of all Israel
Let all the world shout His Glory! Let all who see, the world, tell.
Shout it from the rooftops! Sing it loudly, all to proclaim
A Child is Born, a new hope is given
Praise God and His Holy Name.

“For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6, KJV)
