He Made A Way In A Manger

This Christmas, this song really touched my heart. Take a scroll into the lyrics.

Blessed Christmas everyone, albeit a little late :)


Longing for a savior
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

Chorus:
He made a way in a manger
A way to the cross
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 Savior
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

Bridge:
He is the life that died our death
The precious Lord Jesus
Laid down his sweet head

Chorus:
He made a way in a manger
A way to the cross
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

Away in a manger, no crib for his bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay

I love this song! But I have a correction for you...
The second line in the chorus should be "a way through the Son"

And the verse of "Away in a Manger" should be before the last chorus, not after...

Though he knew what love would cost
He made a way in a manger
A way to the cross
