lyrics

The night was cold and I was tired and lonely
But I could not sleep
So I huddled in my coat beside the fire
And wiled away the time by counting sheep
The stars went shining on serenely
Like they did before my life was torn apart
And the wind as it howled across the hillside
Found an echo in my bitter lonely heart

I thought about the wrongs I had done
About all my stubbornness had cost
And I wondered if my life would ever change
If I’d retrieve the things the I had lost
Then the night – the night it broke wide open
I had never in my life been more afraid
There were ranks of angels blazing with glory
And this is what I swear I heard them say

Peace ... peace on the earth
Peace and goodwill to men
Peace ... in your heart
A King is born to you in Bethlehem

I left the sheep and ran to find Him
It was just the way the angel had said:
A baby, wrapped in scraps and rags
With a manger for His bed
Now they said He was born a king
But He surely did not look the part
And I’ve tried, but I cannot explain it
All I know is He healed my broken heart

Peace ... peace on the earth
Peace and goodwill to men
Peace ... in your heart
A Saviour is born in Bethlehem

Peace ... peace on the earth
Peace and goodwill to men
Peace ... in your heart
From the Child who was born in Bethlehem
From the Baby who was born in Bethlehem
From the Child who was born in Bethlehem
