Hallelujah, Christ is Born in Bethlehem


When I was about 17 years old I wrote this song about the birth of the Savior. In a land far away He was born. Two thousand years have passed, yet the power of His birth, life, death and resurrection are just as powerful as they were that first Christmas eve. While in Jerusalem, I was able to sit on the hills that overlook the small town of Bethlehem. As the sun began to set, and the night sky filled with small sparks of light, my thoughts turned to that night when angels came to herald the birth of our King and Redeemer. Hallelujah, they sung! Christ is Born in Bethlehem!

Though I was not there on that night, I hope to be able to raise this same voice of praise and joy. "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)
