Written December 2018, three months after finding out we were going to be parents
Featuring the voice of Christopher Shea as Linus Van Pelt in A Charlie Brown Christmas

lyrics

They witnessed the choir
That lit up the sky
And they ran through town to spread the word
Of angels heard on high
And captives found comfort
In a land occupied
At the mention of the message of
The new and glorious light

And it wasn’t from the government
Or the empire at war
It wasn’t from a hero with a sword

But from a baby born
From a baby born
Lift up your eyes
All you who mourn
And feel the joy
Of a baby born

We’re searching the heavens
Like Magi of old
And we’re seeing just how small we are
And how much we don’t know
From somewhere there’s an answer
There’s a fire in our souls
Between Capricorn and Cancer
There’s a star to guide us home

And it isn’t from a law we’ve set
Like a path that’s tired and worn
But a brand new world that’s never been explored

It’s from a baby born
From a baby born
Lift up your eyes
All you who mourn
And feel the joy
Of a baby born
