Our King is Born (Come Let Us Sing)

 

 

 

A story once was told

of hushed shadows in the night,

while the little baby Jesus

lay wrapped in swaddling tight.

~

Everlasting light that shone

while stars in quietness gleamed,

Bethlehem was blessed with birth

for silenced was the dreamed.

~

Breath of wings could not be heard

as angels hovered near the earth,

bent low to sing of our new king

to impart to men of His great worth.

~

   Shepherds keeping watch of flocks

had seen the telling star,

wise men travelled with their gifts

they had come from near and far.

~

Gathered in a little stable

in a manger lay our king,

a lowly birth upon this earth

Christ is born come let us sing!

~

Come joyful all adore Him

praise our king forevermore,

Let our souls unite with praise

our hearts and hands to Him we raise.
