Longing for a Savior
A hopeless world would wait
Sin demanded justice
At a price we could not pay
But God displayed His mercy
The greatest gift of love
When we could not reach Heaven
Heaven came to us

He made a way in a manger
A way through the Son
Messiah the Promised
Before time had begun
For God so loved this world
Though He knew what love would cost
He made a way in a manger
To make a way to the cross
(He made a way)

In Bethlehem a stable
Became a throne of grace
As God Himself our Savior
Drew near to take our place
His mother smiled in wonder
As shepherds stood in awe
The Sacrifice of Heaven
Lay sleeping in the straw

He is the life Who died our death
The precious Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay
