​In The First Light (Postlude)

This song is by Todd Agnew and appears on the album Do You See What I See? (2006).

In the first light of a new day
No one knew he had arrived
Things continued as they had been
While a newborn 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 her baby not yet speaking
Was the word of God to man

He would tell them of His kingdom
But their hearts would not believe
And they would hate Him and in anger
They would nail Him to a tree, oh

But the sadness would be broken as the song of life arose
And the firstborn 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 every 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, 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 comes to rule

Said the king to the people everywhere, "Listen to what I say"
Pray for peace, people everywhere and listen to what I say

A child, a child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light
A child, a child, sleeping in the night

He will bring us goodness and light
When he comes to the Earth
(He will bring us goodness)
He will bring us goodness and light
