Her birthing time was drawing near,
They'd traveled very far.
Then Joseph caught the tiny babe
And saw the star.
The sleepy shepherds on the hill
Gazed on a frightened sight
Of angels in the opened sky
And dazzling light.
Bright beams streamed through the stable door
And shone on Mary's face.
While God smiled down and blessed the world
With saving Grace.
Are we heedful to his coming?
Are we prepared this night?
Come, then! Unwrap God's precious gift
Of Love and Light.
