Were you there, were you there on that Christmas night
When the world was filled with a holy light?
Were you there to behold when the wonder foretold came to earth?


Did you see, did you see how they hailed him king,
With the gifts so rare that they chose to bring?
Did you see how they bowed as they praised him aloud at his birth?


Did you hear how the choirs of angels sang at the glory of the sight?
Did you hear how the bells of heaven rang all through the night?
Did you know, did you know it was God’s own son,
The salvation of the world begun?


Did you know it was love that was sent from above to the earth?
