The world is waiting
in total darkness
anticipating
the light
The new day dawning
will hold a promise
the holy morning
is bright
Alleluyah.

We come to worship from many places just like the shepherds and kings
And on this morning we add our praises and so the whole wide world sings
Alleluyah.

Jesus is calling
you make a new start
Christmas is swelling
the love in our hearts
So when you're joining the celebrations and hear the old church bell ring
We'll still be praising our heav'nly Father to make the whole wide world sing
Alleluyah.
