the little stranger
come down to the manger,
see the little stranger
wrapped in swaddling clothes,
the prince of peace
wheels start turning,
torches start burning
and the old wise men journey from the east.
how a little baby boy could bring the people so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
this must be Christmas, must be tonight!
a shepherd on a hillside, while over my flock I bide
on a cold winter night a band of angels sing
in a dream i heard a voice saying "fear not, come rejoice
it's the end of the beginning, praise the new born king"!
i saw it with my own eyes, written up in the skies
but why a simple herdsmen such as I?
and then it came to pass, He was born at last
right below the star that shines on high!
