There's a Song in the Air

Manger Scene

Luke 2:7
"And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn."

          There's a song in the air!  There's a star in the sky!
          There's a mother's deep prayer, And a baby's low cry!
          And the star rains its fire while the beautiful sing,
          For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King!

          There's a tumult of joy, O'er the wonderful birth,
          For the Virgin's sweet boy, Is the Lord of the earth.
          Ay!  the star rains its file while the beautiful sing,
          For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King!

          In the light of that star, Lie the ages impearled;
          And that song from afar, Has swept over the world,
          Ev'ry hearth is aflame, and the beautiful sing,
          In the homes of the nations that Jesus is King!

          We rejoice in the light, And we echo the song,
          That comes down thru the night, From the heavenly throng,
          Ay!  we shout to the lovely evangel they bring,
          And we greet in His cradle our Saviour and King!
