so many years ago, in a cattle
dreary and dark even with
Baby's cry and a mother's joy as
God's Son so near.
A darkened world held its breath
that night, beholding God's Light so clear.
message glorious, gift of God,
announced by angels' song.
The shepherds watched their flocks
that night, a night that seemed so long.
An angel came to bring great
to all who dwell on earth.
"The Savior of the world has

message glorious came to wise men
as they watched a star by night.
They left their homes, traveled
to see this glorious sight.
In their hearts somehow they knew

They followed the star. They found
the Christ and gave their rich offerings.
message glorious is Christ
and still He comes today.
He comes to hearts that are open
seeking God's living Way.
He comes in the moments of joy
He comes when sadness is near.
He comes anytime you open your
His perfect love casts away fear.
His own precious
sent to free us from sin.
God's message glorious,
and His gracious love will pour
