The shadows fell o'er Bethlehem, and o'er the waiting world
And darkness gathered 'round the shepherds biding in the fields
When in a moment song and splendor rent the skies above
And the night was filled with wonder
And a manger was filled with Love.

Ah, that I had seen the shepherds come to seek the Lamb
And looked with them on Jesus' face, and touched the infant hands
And felt with them the Father's peace descending from above
And the night was filled with wonder
And a manger was filled with Love.

I need not see the Holy Child to know him for my King
I need not hear the voice of heaven's host re-echoing
For I have heard the Spirit's witness whispered from above
And the night was filled with wonder
And a manger was filled with Love.

A voice as pure as angel-song has spoken from above
And my heart is filled with wonder
At a manger filled with Love.
