Studio demo
And so then to a lowly manger,
just barely sheltered from the sky,
where not a whisper can be heard
yet starlight sings a lullaby,
shall we draw nigh?

And to the place where angels lead us,
with Kings and shepherds standing by,
where all the creatures of the earth
bow down and worship with a sigh,
shall we draw nigh?

What is it that I have to offer?
What precious treasure shall I bring?
I have no innocence,
I have no confidence
to look upon a King

But still then to a humble cradle,
wherein the hopes of all now lie,
and bringing only what we have:
a simple promise to abide,
shall we draw nigh
