Christmas Was Born of Love

Christmas Was Born of Love It was a long road to Bethlehem Following a pilgrim’s path Searching the sky in the day’s fading light Making their way through the night. They looked for David’s city, Bethlehem Crowded with travelers just like themselves Though tired and alone they saw the wonder God’s love to earth newborn. For… Christmas was born of love With a shout and a song and a star; Born for a babe who would show this old world How to live Christmas ev’ry day How to live love ev’ry way. They looked in wonder at Emmanuel Lying in a manger bed; So many came to marvel that night Bringing their gifts and their gold. The sound of heavenly music filled the sky Scents of frankincense filled the air; Then they saw him smile in the shadows of starlight God’s love to earth new born. And… Christmas was born of love With a shout and a song and a star; Born for a babe who would show this old world How to live Christmas ev’ry day How to live love ev’ry way. These are the lyrics to Christmas Was Born of Love. It can be heard on iHeart radio. Merry Christmas Eve
