A World Awakes

A world awakes all unaware
Of what the night did bring
A mother’s pain a baby’s cry
New life begins
While Bethlehem slumbers
In shadows so dark and deep
Sweetly sleep
Oooh

What child is this in manger laid
That dazzled shepherds seek?
Whom heaven adores yet earth ignores
Helpless and weak
Most ancient of mysteries
Stirs in the chill of these streets
Sweetly sleep
Oooh

O world awake!
Shake off the night
A greater dawn is breaking
A brighter Sun
Heaven’s pure light
To set the world on fire
God in flesh appearing
Heaven and earth are touching here
Receive him now
As you would welcome
A newborn child

Awake my soul and be in awe
Of what that night did bring
In David’s town the baby born
Is this world’s new King
Come seek like the shepherds
Come follow the bright guiding star
He’s not far

God in flesh appearing
Heaven and earth are touching here
Receive him now
As you would welcome
A newborn child
Receive him now
As you would welcome
A newborn child
