Why Was It So Important?

Why was it so important?

Why did the star shine so bright?

Why did the angels proclaim the news?

Of the birth of a baby that night?

Why did the shepherds listen?

Why did the angels sing?

Why did the wise men bring their very best

to this tiny little king?

It was because the greatest gift

Was sent from heaven above,

This gist — a tiny baby,

Our Jesus born from love.

The love of our heavenly father

Who cared so much you see

He sent to us a savior,

The baby who will set man free.
