A Child Is Born

A ray of hope flickers in the sky 
A tiny star lights up way up high 
All across the land, dawns a brand new morn 
This comes to pass when a child is born 

A silent wish sails the seven seas 
The winds of change whisper in the trees 
And the walls of doubt crumble, tossed and torn 
This comes to pass when a child is born 

A rosy hue settles all around 
You've got the feel you're on solid ground 
For a spell or two, no-one seems forlorn 
This comes to pass when a child is born 

And all of this happens because the world is waiting, 
Waiting for one child 
Black, white, yellow, no-one knows 
But a child that will grow up and turn tears to laughter, 
Hate to love, war to peace and everyone to everyone's neighbour 
And misery and suffering will be words to be forgotten, forever 

It's all a dream, an illusion now 
It must come true, sometime soon somehow 
All across the land, dawns a brand new morn 
This comes to pass when a child is born
