31 Days of Christmas Lyrics, Day 20 (In The First Light)

In the First Light of a new day, no one knew He had arrived…

And here’s the second entry from GLAD – a Bob Kauflin song, from An Acappella Christmas. Haven’t checked out that project?? Well, you really need to get with it. (#okboomer) The ending will make your socks roll up and down, cause damage to your speakers because you cranked it to 11 and ripped the knob off, and will astonish you that a group of fellas could pump out that kind of sound.

“But how much greater, will our song be, when He comes again to earth?”

In the first light of a new day
No one knew He had arrived
Things continued as they had been
While a new born softly cried.
But the heavens wrapped in wonder
Knew the meaning of His birth
In the weakness of a baby
They knew God had come to earth.

As His mother held him closely,
It was hard to understand
That this baby not yet speaking
Was the Word of God to man.
He would tell them of His kingdom,
But their hearts would not believe
They would hate Him and in anger
They would nail Him to a tree.

But the sadness would be broken
As the song of life arose
And the First born of creation
Would ascend and take his throne.
He had left it to redeem us,
But before His life began
He knew He´d come back not as a baby
But as The Lord of ev´ry man.

Hear the angels as they´re singing
On the morning of His birth
But how much greater will our song be
When He comes again to earth
When He comes again

Hear the angels as they´re singing
On the morning of His birth
But how much greater will our song be
When He comes again to Earth
When He comes to rule the Earth!
When He comes back, When He comes back
To rule the Earth!
– Robert John Kauflin
