From the album Christmas: The Story of Stories.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Now the angels’ song has trailed away
And only earthly sounds remain
A baahing sheep, a bleating goat
A nervous shepherd clears his throat
And a husband asks “Are you alright?”
As a weary mother lullabyes
And through it all a baby cries …

Hush now, listen, that’s the sound
Of the Kingdom coming (the Kingdom coming)
The Kingdom coming (the Kingdom coming)
The Kingdom coming to your town

Now the angels’ song was long ago
Was it all a dream? It’s hard to know
Cause we’ve made ourselves a world so loud
Who can hear a thing in the madding crowd?
Oh but sometimes on a midnight clear
If we close our eyes we begin to hear
A still small voice saying “Christ is near”
