Charlie Daniels — Jesus Is The Light Of The World lyrics

On a clear night, many many years ago
Two weary strangers moving slow
Were looking for a place to stay

But there was no place
Though they traveled many miles
So Mary being great with Child
Lay down on the sweet smelling hay

And then a bright light fell from Heaven
As a special star shone bright
And three wise men from a foreign land
Came to worship Him that night

And in the clear night
You could hear the Angels sing
Praises to the newborn King
Jesus is the light of the world
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/charlie-daniels-jesus-is-the-light-of-the-world-lyrics.html ]
And the Angels heralding the Holy Birth
Were singing peace to men on earth
Unto you is born a Son

And the shepherds
Though they had their flocks to tend
Journeyed unto Bethlehem
To behold the Holy One

And then the Boy grew up to be a Man
Come to set the captives free
Come to heal the sick and raise the dead
And to cause the blind to see

And the best part
Is even though He's gone away
He'll be coming back someday
Jesus is the light of the world

And the best part
Is even though He's gone away
He'll be coming back someday
Jesus is the light of the world
Jesus is the light of the world
Jesus is the light of the world
