The Manger Lyrics

They’re putting decorations up in front of my old church

The shepherds and the wise men and the hay

There’s Joseph and his Mary lookin’ down at Heaven’s birth

And the angel’s saying don’t you be afraid


It makes me stop and think about how You showed up down here

In a humble bed made of nails and wood 

You could have picked a palace, something more fit for a King

But then the story wouldn’t be as good 


From the highest of the high

To the lowest of the low 

That stable tells a story of the distance You will go 

For the lonely and the lost

There’s no sinner too far gone to find a Savior 

Lying in the manger


There’s a star up in the sky that’s calling all the least of these 

Come make your way to where your hope is found

If I’m honest some days I feel too far out of reach 

But the manger reminds me love reached down


You were carried by a manger and just 33 years later 

By a rugged cross made from nails and wood 

And the tears fill up my eyes, You didn’t have to give Your life 

But then the story wouldn’t be as good
