The Night Before Christmas

Empty manger, perfect stranger,
About to be born.
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness,
Creation so torn.
We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth,
No way to escape.
In fear, no faith, no hope, no grace ,and no light,
But that was the night before Christmas.


Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet,
Praying godspeed the dawn.
She looks to her man, holding her hand,
They wonder how long.
And the shepherds, wise men come to find them,
And bow to a king.
One star above shining on love, so bright,
It lit up the night before Christmas.

And the world didnt know mercy was meek and so mild.
And the world didnt know that truth was as pure as a child.
The night before Christmas.
The night before Christmas.

And the world didnt know, redemption was sweet and so strong.
And the world didnt know salvation was writing a song.
The night before christmas.
The night before christmas.
The night before christmas.
Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born.

Praying that your Christmas is blessed with what matters most...
