There are others who know about this miracle birth

The humblest of people catch a glimpse of their worth

For it isn’t to the palace that the Christ child comes

But to shepherds and street people, hookers and bums

And the message is clear if you’ve got [you have] ears to hear

That forgiveness is given for your guilt and your fear

It’s a Christmas gift [that] you don’t have to buy

There’s a future shining in a baby’s eyes

– Bruce Cockburn, Cry of a Tiny Babe, from Nothing but a burning Light
