  • On a clear night, many many years ago
    Two weary strangers moving slow
    Were looking for a place to stay
    But there was no place
    Though they traveled many miles
    So Mary being great with Child
    Lay down on the sweet smelling hay
    Then a bright light fell from heaven
    As a special star shone bright
    And three wise men from a foreign land
    Came to worship him that night
    And in the clear night you could hear the angels sing
    Praises to the newborn King
    Jesus is the light of the world.

    And the angels heralding the Holy Birth
    Were singing Peace to men on Earth
    Unto you is born a Son
    And the shepherds
    Though they had their flocks to tend
    Journeyed unto Bethlehem
    To behold the Holy One

    And then the Boy grew up to be a Man
    Come to set the captives free
    Come to heal the sick and raise the dead
    And to cause the blind to see
    And the best part is even though
    He's gone away
    He'll be coming back someday
    Jesus is the Light of the world

    And the best part is even though
    He's gone away
    He'll be coming back someday
    Jesus is the Light of the world.

    Jesus is the Light of the world.
    Jesus
    is the Light
    of the world.
