The Night Before Christmas

The Night Before Christmas
by Brandon Heath

Empty manger, perfect stranger about to be born
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn
We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth, no way to escape
In fear, no faith, no hope no grace, and no light,
But that was the night before Christmas

Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet, praying godspeed the dawn
She looks to her man, holding her hand. They wonder how long.
And the shepherds, wise men come to find them, and bow to a king.
One star above shining on love, so bright
it lit up the night before Christmas.

And the world didn’t know, mercy was meek and so mild.

And the world didn’t know that truth was as pure as a child.

The night before Christmas.
The night before Christmas.

[INSTRUMENTAL]

And the world didn’t know, redemption was sweet and so strong.

And the world didn’t know salvation was writing a song.

The night before Christmas.
The night before Christmas.
The night before Christmas.

Empty manger, perfect stranger about to be born.
