On a dark and lonely night
A Savior came to bring us light.
A bright star was showing the way
to where the tiny baby lay.
Animals in the barn where he stayed
were amazed by the babe that laid
wrapped in cloths in the manger.
This tiny babe's life was in danger.
King Herod was very afraid
and a proclamation was made.
The boys two and under you must kill,
but prophesy had to be fulfilled.
On the wonderful night long ago,
a Savior came so we would know
the love of our Father and His grace.
Some sweet day we'll see Him face to face.
Remember the Messiah every day.
Believe in Him now, without delay.
Sing praises as angels did at His birth,
when He came to live and die on earth.
All through the ages God had a plan,
from sin's grasp He must save every man.
It began with the babe in the hay.
Take this Savior to be yours today.
