The First Christmas


The First Christmas

Music from the New Era

1. The earth was bathed in clean, pure light,
As heavenward the star burned bright,
A sign from God to men on earth
To tell the world of Jesus’ birth.

Chorus

 

2. Ye shepherds, wisemen homage bring,
Come kneel before this tiny king.
See love, God’s greatest gift to all,
Personified in lowly stall.

Chorus

 

Chorus
As angel choirs sang “Gloria,”
Mary hummed a lullaby,
Rocked and hushed her tiny child,
While Joseph watched o’er both and smiled.
