It was on that dark night
When the shepherds drew near
When the angels celebrated in the heavens
When the world sang the news

It was in the stable
In a place where the animals dwelt
In a place where the desperate would sleep
In a place where the light was dim

It was a moment that would save the world
Lost to the enemy of a gracious God
Lost to the sins of contention
Lost to the desires of men

Love of God personified was born to man
A love most desperately needed
A love man must learn to reflect
A love that would outshine every love before

A Child born among the lowly
He would change the world
He would give all He had
He would lead His people to salvation

There in that dark place
The First Christmas Light was born
The First Christmas Light was lit
The First Christmas Light that burns so bright today
