Lyrics

In a town of David, not so near to spring
At the heart of love, there came a lovely thing
It was the time of Mary, the time of Caesar's reign
Nothing in our lives would ever be the same
It was so long ago, but we remember still:
Star upon the snow, straw against the chill
A planet dancing slow, a tree upon a hill
Star upon the snow, straw against the chill
Stumbling in the darkness, it was her time for birth
Bearing in her womb, the King of all the earth
Searching for some shelter, by a cruel decree
They found a kind of glory the mighty never see
It was so long ago, but we remember still:
Star upon the snow, straw against the chill
A planet dancing slow, a tree upon a hill
Star upon the snow, straw against the chill
There within a stable, the baby drew a breath
There began a life that put an end to death
And all the frozen stillness, mighty voices heard:
"God is here among you! Human is the Word!"
It was so long ago, but we remember still:
Star upon the snow, straw against the chill
A planet dancing slow, a tree upon a hill
Star upon the snow, straw against the chill
