One Moment 1


One moment a king
The next moment a babe
As the angels began to sing
He joined those He came to save

One moment a crown of glory
The next moment swaddling clothes
As the shepherds heard the story
The winds of peace start to blow

One moment a hopeless people
The next moment changes history
As we received a gift without equal
God’s love no longer a mystery

One moment distance and a veil
The next moment the Messiah arrived
As joy rained down like hail
He has come to give us eternal life
