Tune: CHRISTMAS SONG, Meter: 66.66.12 12

1.	There's a song in the air! 
	There's a star in the sky! 
	There's a mother's deep prayer 
	and a baby's low cry! 
	And the star rains its fire 
	while the beautiful sing, 
	for the manger of Bethlehem 
	cradles a King! 

2.	There's a tumult of joy 
	o'er the wonderful birth, 
	for the virgin's sweet boy 
	is the Lord of the earth. 
	Ay! the star rains its fire 
	while the beautiful sing, 
	for the manger of Bethlehem 
	cradles a King! 

3.	In the light of that star 
	lie the ages impearled; 
	and that song from afar 
	has swept over the world. 
	Every hearth is aflame, 
	and the beautiful sing 
	in the homes of the nations 
	that Jesus is King! 

4.	We rejoice in the light, 
	and we echo the song 
	that comes down through the night 
	from the heavenly throng. 
	Ay! we shout to the lovely 
	evangel they bring, 
	and we greet in his cradle 
	our Savior and King!
