There’s a star up in the sky
Telling me of a love that’s come nigh.
It shines so bright of heavenly glory.
It begins to tell of His story.
Love, peace, and joy… gifts from Father God
Sent to mankind walking earthly sod.
Darkness was choking the life created,
So Love stepped forth and mediated.
Pain, grief, sorrow, and dread
Would be erased when His blood was shed.
But before He would go to Calvary’s tree,
He became the child of the Christmas tree.
New life He was. New life He gave.
He came to reconcile. He came to save.
The Light that led the way that night,
Still leads men to that heavenly Light.
