A Manger Filled With Love
The shadows fell o’er Bethlehem, and o’er the waiting world,
And darkness gathered ‘round the shepherds biding in the fields.
When in a moment song and splendor rent the skies above,
And the night was filled with wonders and a manger was filled with love.
Ah, that I had seen the Shepherds come to seek the Lamb,
And looked with them on Jesus’ face, and touched the infant hands,
And felt with them the Father’s peace descending from above,
When their hearts were filled with wonder at a manger filled with love.
A voice as pure as angel song has spoken from above,
and my heart is filled with wonder at a manger filled with love.
I need not see the Holy Child to know him for my King,
I need not hear the voice of heaven’s host reechoing,
For I have heard the Spirit’s witness whispered from above,
And my heart is filled with wonder at a manger filled with love.
