This is war like you ain’t seen.
This winter’s long, it’s cold and mean.
With downcast hearts we stood condemned,
But the tide turns now at Bethlehem.
This is war and born tonight,
The Word as flesh, the Lord of Light,
The Son of God, the low-born king;
Who demons fear, of whom angels sing.
Hallelujah! The Child is born
He is the Rescue weʼve waited for
The throne of David He will restore
And reign with mercy forevermore
This is war on sin and death;
The dark will take its final breath.
It shakes the earth, confounds all plans;
The mystery of God as man.
