Once Upon


Verse 1
Once upon a midnight clear
Heaven’s song broke through the air
Peace and goodwill toward men
Born now in Bethlehem

Verse 2
Once upon a bed of straw
Slept the Sovereign Son of God
Lord of the universe
Breathing the dust of earth

Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, our Messiah
Name above every name, gloria in the highest

Verse 3
Once upon a splintered cross
Jesus died to rescue us
All of our shame and sin
Nailed to the tree with Him

Verse 4
Once upon a brilliant day
Christ the Conqueror was raised
Heaven and nature sing
“Praise to the King of kings!”
