Called to Bethlehem

Like Mary, like Joseph
the shepherds and the wise men
called to Bethlehem
to see the savior’s birth
Traveling, waiting
traveling far
we all moved toward
David’s city
following Christ’s star

The prophesy, the promises of angels
in the manger bed revealed
the king of kings and lord of lords
come to earth to save
While the world around ignored
or did not notice
we travel, called to Bethlehem
waiting for our savior’s birth
