And The World Didn’t Know…

“And the world didn’t know, mercy was meek and so mild.

And the world didn’t know that truth was as pure as a child.

The night before Christmas. [2x]

And the world didn’t know, redemption was sweet and so strong.

And the world didn’t know salvation was writing a song.

The night before Christmas. [3x]

– Brandon Heath

Even though Christmas is months away, this particular song and music video is one that not only tells us about the birth of Christ, but it also shares how lost and fallen the world was before our Savior came to rescue us.

Our world is lost and fallen today;  for those who live without the meaning and redemption of our souls through the cross of Jesus Christ.  It’s a favorite song that I could listen to over and over again!

Complete song lyrics:

The Night Before Christmas

by Brandon Heath.

Empty manger, perfect stranger about to be born

Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn

We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth, no way to escape

In fear, no faith, no hope no grace, and no light,

But that was the night before Christmas

Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet.
Praying godspeed the dawn

She looks to her man, holding her hand.
They wonder how long.

And the shepherds, wise men come to find them, and bow to a king.

One star above shining on love, so bright it lit up the night before Christmas.

And the world didn’t know, mercy was meek and so mild.

And the world didn’t know that truth was as pure as a child.

The night before Christmas. [2x]

[INSTRUMENTAL]

And the world didn’t know, redemption was sweet and so strong.

And the world didn’t know, salvation was writing a song.

The night before Christmas. [3x]

Empty manger, perfect stranger about to be born.

The acoustic version is beautiful too!
