Lyrics

The Very Face of Grace

I wonder what it felt like
To be the first to see
The Glory of God come down
Lying in a manger
Clothed in frail humanity
A host of angels all around… singing

Glory to God in the Highest
Peace on earth goodwill to men
The very face of grace has come
To Bethlehem

Oh and I wonder did Mary remember
The words the angel said
Among the women of this world you have been blessed
When suddenly she finds herself
With the one true Son of God
Nursing at her virgin breast … and she sings

Glory to God in the Highest
Peace on earth goodwill to men
The very face of grace has come
To Bethlehem

Oh, Bethlehem, just a little country town
Chosen as the birthplace of the King
Your name will be remembered
As the place the Word touched down
Every time the angels sing …

Glory to God in the Highest
Peace on earth goodwill to men
The very face of grace has come to Bethlehem
The very face of grace has come to Bethlehem
The very face of grace has come
To save the souls of men…
