Listen! An angel chorus sings!
Now the time has come
My alabaster box to offer.
With tapestries of snow upon my head
And bouquets of times gone by
I shout with the angels
Telling the hills a glorious tiding.
We come from a land far away
Our knees bend low to honor
The little King so holy.
Kings feast on rich repast
A sleepy world dreams on
The voice of the trumpet sounds
But in this alabaster box
My reward will live on!
Sleep tight in your mothers arms!
Someday when you wake
The morning will arise
With crashing mountains
Open to your embrace
Once again the angels sing
You and I will be face to face!
