just a few days away from christmas...and if you peel away the tinsel and commercial
wrappings you will find a profound and extraordinary truth..the Word becomes flesh and God becomes man!!

UNTO US

Shadows steal across the silent desert sands
Night falls hard as sunlight fades
A myriad of silver stars survey the lonely road
Nearing journey’s end, her time draws near
Yesterday a child, today the call of motherhood

It’s busy on the streets in downtown Bethlehem
On this the birth of Christmas eve
An anxious father shops around for room and board
Time and time again he’s turned away
There’s nothing left in town but a run down one star cattle shed

For unto us, unto us a son is given
Unto us, unto us a child is born


As shepherds slumber with their flocks upon the hills
Beneath a starlit canopy
A band of restless angels burst upon the peaceful scene
And to everyone’s bewilderment
Eternal mysteries in choral song reveal

I fasten tinsel to the tree on Christmas eve
And pour a glass of festive cheer
And while I warm myself beside the open hearth
A mother wraps her newborn child in rags
And baby Jesus draws first breath
Sweet stench of cattle hide

For unto us, unto us a son is given
Unto us, unto us a child is born
The government shall rest upon his shoulders
The destiny of all mankind placed in such tiny Hands
For unto us, unto us a son is given
Unto us, unto us a child is born

Excellent song ^^. Not sure how many of the metalheads of UG would respond to this in a positive fashion, but this song is a good reminder to those of us who believe what Christmas really means.
