What A Night

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

Mary and Joseph travelled oh so many miles

They awaited the birth of their first child

Looking for a room at the inn

There was no room for them within

A stable would be there room for the night

 

The shepherds were startled by an Angelic light

Do not be afraid echoed through the night

I bring good tidings of Joy

Peace on earth for girls and boys

And a host of Angels Loud Hosannas sing

 

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

  1. See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

They came with their flocks to find that babe

Wrapped in some clothes and laid in the hay

They knelt down to worship Him

Assured He’s the coming King

Then for a while they would worship and stay

 

Mary and Joseph knew their child was special

They’d both been told of His coming arrival

But they held their peace

When the shepherds did speak

And asked why they were summoned by angels

 

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night

 

The wise men arrived from the east they had come

They knew that the star was a sign from above

Their gifts they did bear

Gold, incense and myrrh

They knelt down to worship this child filled with love

 

Thus, the scene was set

No one would forget

That the Son of God came as a babe

And for many years

Mary shed her tears

For she knew what a price he would pay

 

What a night, what a night, what a very special night

See the star in the sky shining oh so bright

See the shepherds by the fire 

See the wise men follow the star

Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
