For unto us, a child is born
Unto us, a Son is given 
Unto us, a sweet child is born
I wish I could've been there 
 About two thousand years had gone by
 Since the event that changed my life, ooh
 There Wise Men and all heaven proclaim 

The King is here and will never reign, ooh
If I could've been laid eyes on Him
So powerful yet innocent  Knowing that He would've come just for me
I would've held my Greator in my arms
Oh what joy, what unspeakable joy! 

I wish I could've been there 
On Christmas morn
I wish I could've seen my Jesus 
When He was born
I wish I could've been there 
On Christmas morn
I wish I could've seen my Jesus 
When He was born. 

I wish I were there in Bethlehem 
When they rejoiced at the birth of the Lamb, oooh
And I will always celebrate
When Jesue came, when He came and took all our sins away
(Repeat) 

If I'd have been there 
When Christ was born
I'd have been the first one to sing
If you had beared a loud voice  Praising His name
That would've been me
Yes, I'd be
Praisin' (Jesus)
 Thank my (Jesus)
 Worship (Jesus)
 Enjoy (Jesus)
I'd be praisin' (Jesus)
Praisin' (Jesus)
'Cause I love my Jesus 
I wish I could've been there, oh yeah
On Christmas morning
Seen my Jesus was born
(I wish I could've been there)
I wish I could've been there 
On Christmas morning
Seen my Jesus baby was been
I wish I could've been there 
On Christmas morning
I'd been praisin' with one of the Wise Men
Yes I would 
I'd call Him wonderful (wonderful)
Ooh Counselor (Counselor)
He's the mighty God (Mighty God)
Ooh, Everlasting Father (Everlasting Father)
You're the Prince of Peace (Prince of peace) 
You're the mighty God (The Mighty God)
You're so wonderful (Wonderful)
You're my Counselor (Wonderful)
You're so wonderful (Wonderful)
You're my Counselor 
(The everlasting Father)
You're the Prince of Peace (Prince of peace)
Ooh, Everlasting Father (Prince of peace)
You're wonderful (Wonderful)
You're so wonderful (Wonderful)
Jesus, You're wonderful (Wonderful)
You're so wonderful (Wonderful)
(Repeat)
