Twas the night Jesus came and all through the town, Not a person would guess The Messiah came down. The earth gave no warning to speak God’s intent But this magical night I would never forget. The streets were all busy with strangers from far; No time to hear singing or see the bright star.… Continue reading Twas the Night Jesus Came
