Preparing for the Night (4): The Little Stranger

The Band: Written by Robbie Robertson
A wonder of a song that can continue to deepen our getting ready for Christmas. (Words below)

Come down to the manger, see the little stranger
Wrapped in swaddling. Lo! the Prince of Peace
Wheels start turning, torches start burning
Behold wise men journey from the East

How a little baby boy bring the people so much joy
Son of a carpenter, Mary carried the light
This must be Christmas, must be tonight

A shepherd on a hillside, while over my flock I bide
Oh a cold winter night a band of angels sing
In a dream I heard a voice say "fear not, come rejoice"
It's the end of the beginning, praise the newborn King

I saw it with my own eyes, written up in the sky
But why a simple herdsmen such as I?
And then it came to pass, he was born at last
Right below the star that shines on high
