#97: There’s a Song in the Air!

Standard

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)

1

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.

Ev’ry 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 thru 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!
