The Manger And The Cross Lyrics

The road was dusty ruff and long
Her labour pains were getting strong
Ends were full as night closed in on them
Young Mary made it to a barn
Leaning hard on Joseph's arm
His coat and straw would make for her a bed

That night in Bethlehem city of bread
Long promise bread of life was born
Brightest star and darkest night
Treasure at loss
The world and the bread of life
The manger and the cross

A wooden manger was his bead
A big bag of grain held his sweet head
The borrowed cave became his borrowed home
Some borrow neighbors came to see
This fragile babe eternity
Lying there in Mary's arms awake
And did the carpenter feel the ruff wood
Was there in Mary's heart some pain

Brightest star and darkest night
Treasure at loss
The world and the bread of life
The manger and the cross

O come and place a baby's face
Where all heaven and her
Dance in the light
All the hopes and fears
Of all the years
Are met in you
Tonight tonight

Tender head and rugged wood
Deep as hunger's holy food
The breathe of God comes right to where we are

That night in Bethlehem city of bread
Long promise bread of life was born
Brightest glory and darkest night
Treasure at loss
The world and the holy seed
The world and the holy seed
The manger and the cross


Luke 2 : 16 And they came with haste, and found both Mary and Joseph, and the babe lying in the manger. Luke 2 : 7 And she brought forth her firstborn son; and she wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
