Brandon Heath's The Night Before Christmas*:
Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be bornListen to the whole thing from YouTube:
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn
We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth, no way to escape
In fear, no faith, no hope, no grace, and no light
But that was the night before Christmas
Or buy it on Amazon.
