"YOU WERE SENT FROM UP ABOVE"

Long ago in Palestine,
Hope and joy came to mankind,
Midst the darkness shone great light,
For Christ was born one winter's night

Stars o'erhead were glistening,
Shepherds knelt before the King,
For there upon a bed of hay,
The Child from heaven's kingdom lay

Chorus:
You were sent from up Above to teach us of Your Father's love,
To give Your life to set us free, and guide our hearts to liberty

"Sleep now, baby" Mary said,
And angels whispered overhead,
"Sleep now, Jesus, while You can,
The cross awaits when You're a man"

Jesus, come live in my heart,
Christmas bells their ringing start,
In my heart forever ring, be my Saviour,
Be my King

Chorus:
You were sent from up Above to teach us of Your Father's love,
To give Your life to set us free, and guide our hearts to liberty

[Repeat Chorus Twice]
