Lyrics sample

Now we tread the way illuminated by the rays

Of light that shine

Across the desert night.

By the light of this great star we see two trav’lers from afar.

They go our way:

We follow the same light.

And now they’ve found a time

When they can satisfy their minds,

They must go!

They will see the dawn

When the Son of God is born

So we’ll go – go – tonight.

Go to the town, go to the town where,

Go to the town where we’ll find the babe.
