Michael Ball When a Child Is Born Lyrics

sponsored links
A ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas
The winds have changed, whisper in the trees
And the walls of doubt crumbled, tossed and torn
This comes to past when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around
You've got to feel, you're on solid ground
And for a spell or two no one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born

And all of this happens because the world is waiting
Waiting for one child, black, white, yellow, no one knows
But a child who would grow up and turn tears to laughter
Hate to love, war to peace, everyone to everyone's neighbor
Misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten forever

It's all a dream and illusion now
It must come true, sometime soon, somehow, somehow
All across the land dawns a brand new morn
This comes to pass when a child is born
This comes to pass when a child is born
