The Light

The night was dark
and oh, so still
as shepherds sat
upon the hill.
The a bright light shone
Brilliant and clear
And an angel spoke
"The Messiah's here."

The world is dark
and filled with sin
But peace and hope
light our hearts within.
For we long to hear
an angel's voice
"Jesus has come!
Rejoice, rejoice!"
