Was bethlehem white as snow?
Had you walked as far as your feet could go?
Were you scared to death so far from home?
On that winter night when
Love was born
Did Mary cry in that makeshift room?
Did he take too long or come too soon?
Did you calm the
One that would calm the storm
Or did he calm you when
Love was born?
Was it a silent night?
Could you hear heaven sigh
Giving this gift of love, saving you, saving us
Could you hear the angels sing?
Did you rock to sleep the restless King?
Did you kiss the head where they placed the thorns
Did you feel that sting when love was born?
Do you think
He knew what
He came here for?
The whole world changed when love was born.
