He Made a Way in a Manger

 
Longing for a Saviour, a hopeless world would wait,
Sin demanded justice, at a price we could not pay.
 
But God displayed His mercy, the greatest gift of love,
When we could not reach heaven, heaven came to us.
 
He made a way in a manger, a way through His son,
Messiah the promised, before time had begun.
 
For God so loved this world, though He knew what love would cost,
He made a way in a manger, to make a way to the cross.
 
In Bethlehem a stable, became a throne of grace,
As God Himself our Saviour, drew near to take our place,
 
His mother smiled in wonder as shepherds stood in awe,
the sacrifice of heaven, lay sleeping in the straw.
 
 He made a way in a manger, a way through His son,
Messiah, the promised, before time had begun.
 
For God so loved this world, though He knew what love would cost,
He made a way in a manger, to make a way to the cross.
 
He is the life that died our death,
The precious Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head...
 
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed.
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head;
the stars in the bright sky looked down where He lay,
 the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
 
He made a way in a manger, a way through His son,
Messiah, the promised, before time had begun.
 
For God so loved this world, though He know what love would cost,
 He made a way to the manger, to make a way to the cross.
 
He made a way!
