Every breath of air
Was a silent prayer
I was longing for Your face

And I wondered why
All the years went by
Without a single trace

Anticipating, Lord, we've been waiting
Just watching the days come and go
But now we know

Joy and the angels sang
There was joy
Let the whole world know this
Joy, our King has finally come
Joy, here is the promised One

Set the captives free
Tell the broken reed
Hope has been restored
And the one who cries
For a wandering child
Her tears are not ignored

Father in heaven,
You gave us reason to see past the pain of today
We celebrate


Unending hope for all time
When the King of the ages arrived
