The wonder of Christmas came one eve,
the glory of love in a virgin conceived.
The gift of His coming, the blessing so true,
that came in a manger for me and for you.
The joy that He brings each day to my soul,
hold riches untold that makes my life whole.
A carpenter’s Son, and yet, He is God,
how can I not thank Him, in joy offer laud!
For He is the Saviour so precious to me,
Who taught in the temple and preached on the sea.
Who died on a cross and in victory rose,
a love so adorning it sets each heart free!
That night was the greatest when Christmas was born,
and God became man yet in man He was God.
For the glory He is shall ever live on
because Jesus is Lord and in Him lives this song.
