There’s a song in the air!
There’s a star in the sky!
There’s a mother’s deep prayer
and a baby’s low cry!
And the star rains its fire
while the beautiful sing,
for the manger of Bethlehem
cradles a King!

2 There’s a tumult of joy
o’er the wonderful birth,
for the virgin’s sweet boy
is the Lord of the earth.
Ay! the star rains its fire
while the beautiful sing,
for the manger of Bethlehem
cradles a King!

3 In the light of that star
lie the ages impearled;
and that song from afar
has swept over the world.
Every hearth is aflame,
and the beautiful sing
in the homes of the nations
that Jesus is King!

4 We rejoice in the light,
and we echo the song
that comes down through the night
from the heavenly throng.
Ay! we shout to the lovely
evangel they bring,
and we greet in his cradle
our Savior and King!

written by Josiah G. Holland in1872. Holland was born on 24th July 1819 in Massachusetts, a man of many talents. He passed away 12th October 1881.

This song tries to describe what it must have been like when Jesus was born, and the angels appeared in the heavens.

hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!

Luke 2: 8-14 (NKJV)
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields,
keeping watch over their flock by night. 
And [c]behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 
10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 
11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 
12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a [d]manger.”
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
14 “Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill[e] toward men!”

[c] omits behold
[d] feed trough
[e] toward men of goodwill
