The Sign 9999
An angel appeared to the shepherds
As they tended their sheep on that night,
Foretold of the birth of the Saviour,
Who would banish the dark with His light.
He told of a sign that would guide them
To the place where the infant would lay;
For God placed a star in the heavens
As a sign on that first Christmas Day.
So leaving their sheep far behind them,
With the star shining brightly above,
They followed the sign to a stable,
And there worshipped God’s mercy and love.
They knelt at the altar of heaven,
All their gifts and their praises did bring,
Though they saw the tiniest baby,
All their worship was poured on a king.
