But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. - Micah 5:2

At Christmas we celebrate the astonishing truth that our God has become a man in order to save us. The title and refrain of this song are built around this truth that the Word by whom, through whom and for whom all things were made, has stepped into time and flesh: 'The maker, made a child!' Two thousand years ago, in a small village in the land of Judah, the ruler of all things, the Ancient of Days took on our humanity in order to go to the cross, swallow death, and then rise again and be our High Priest for all time. Born into a line of kings who never lived up to their position, and yet also begotten of the Father from eternity past, Jesus has entered into the brokenness of the world and has made a way for us back to the Father. This is what we celebrate at Christmas, and we hope that this Christmas single helps you to do this.

Verse 1
There was once a child,
a son born long ago
In Bethlehem’s dark, cold night
A promise for the world,
his birth was long foretold
A baby born to swallow death

Chorus
O Bethlehem, a prophet told
From your streets will rise the ruler of all time
O Bethlehem, our king you hold
For the maker of the world is made a child
Oh, the maker of the world is made a child

Verse 2
Descended from the kings
of ever-failing hearts
Begotten from before all time
Behold the Prince of Peace,
behold the Son of God
Who’s swaddled now in mortal flesh

Verse 3
The one who breathed out stars
now draws a shaking breath
The light of life among us dwells
Oh, hear the darkness quake
as angels all proclaim
The glory of Immanuel!
