A Babe Lying in a Manger

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe 
lying in a manger.

I wish I could see how it was that night,
I've prayed about it before.
I'd like to feel and know and see
The night angels opened heaven's door.
I know the words that were sung.
They are recorded in Holy Writ.
But the music itself, how did it sound?
If I could hear just a little bit.

The shepherds, I'd like to see them too,
Hasting down from the quiet hill.
Did they really know exactly where to go?
Or did they search and search until....

I'd like to see Mary so special, so pure,
And Joseph so honorable and so good.
How choice to meet them, to see them myself,
Oh, if only I could.

And the baby, I know just how he would be.
His small face shining with a Godly soul.
Oh, if only, if only I could see.
Someday I will, on Father's scroll.
