I see a stable, cold and bare
A virgin mother, pure and fair
The light of heaven surrounds her there
Peace is born on earth

And in a manger, gently laid
A baby slumbers in the hay
A miracle is wrought this day
Peace is born on earth

I see the shepherds come in haste
To look upon their Savior's face
And wise men seek this holy place
Where peace is born on earth

A new star rises in the heavens
I see the skies with glory riven
Unto us a Son is given
Peace is born on earth

Oh listen to the angel song
That heralds this eternal dawn
And through the years the strains prolong
Peace is born

I wonder now if I would know
Like men of wisdom long ago
The star that first was set aglow
When peace was born on earth

For as I lift my eyes afar
To seek the Bright and Morning Star
The light of heaven fills my heart
And peace is born on earth.
