One night One very special night So many years ago Changed the course of History That baby in a manger So forgotten by the world Attended to by shepherds Visited by Kings Wrapped in tattered cloths And sleeping on the hay All but a silent night With Sheep baaing And horses whinnying Cows mooing and donkeys adding hee-haws They celebrated His birth They praised His coming They witnessed His arrival While the world slept on Don't let this Christmas pass Without recognizing the past Without recognizing that it changed the world Don't let this Christmas pass Without looking in that manger At a lowly child Who would change all mankind Forever.
I see the star, brightly shining, in the calm and dark of night I see the shepherds, as they’re warming, by a fire with dimming light I see the sheep, gently gazing, in the shepherds watchful sight I see a scene, oh how serene, on this holiest of nights Suddenly the sky is parted by an angel glorious Singing praise and peace on earth, sounding quite victorious Fear thou not, the Savior comes, in a manger in a hush Then an multitude arrives as shepherds watch the chorus Glory to God. Glory to God Glory to God in the highest Peace on earth good will to men Glory to God in the highest Shepherds leave their flocks by night to find the lowly manger They arrive and see the babe. They do not feel like strangers They bow before the child and sing the song the angels gave them The highest praise to Christ the King as he lay in the manger Glory to God. Glory to God Glory to God in the highest Peace on earth. Good will to men Glory to God in the highest The highest praise to Christ the King The shepherds pledge Him everything They leave and tell the world they’ve seen The Savior of the world Glory to God. Glory to God Glory to God in the highest Peace on earth. Good will to men Glory to God in the highest
