It Took a Child to Save the World
by Fred Hammond



All the angels held their breath
As Heaven put on human clothes
Rang the news God did not forget
His promise that was sent from the prophets old

The answer came in a sacred birth
Truth and justice, meek and mild
All the hope and the peace on earth
Rested in the hands of a newborn child

From God in the highest
Heaven made a way in a manger
From God in the highest
Love was born through a simple virgin girl
Took a child to save the world

For the ones who were lost He came
Every child of Adam's fall
Emmanuel was the precious name
Of the small boy who would grow
And would touch us all

From God in the highest
Heaven made a way in a manger
From God in the highest
Love was born through a simple virgin girl
A child to save the world

From God in the highest
Heaven made a way in a manger
From God in the highest
Love was born through a simple virgin girl
Took a child to save the world

So let the kings and the nations bow
To the baby so divine
As we lift up our voices now
Praises to the Savior of all mankind

From God in the highest
Heaven made a way in a manger
From God in the highest
Love was born through a simple virgin girl
Took a child to save the world

From God in the highest
Heaven made a way in a manger
From God in the highest
Love was born through a simple virgin girl
Took a child to save the world

For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
Took a child to save the world

For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
He came to seek the lost like you and I

He came to seek and save
Redeem us back to Him
For God so loved the world

For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
If you will believe in Him you will have
If you will believe in Him eternal life you'll find
