Original text and translations

The world is waiting in total darkness anticipating the light The new day dawning will hold a promise the holy morn ing is bright Alleluyah Alleluyah Alleluyah Alleluyah Alleluyah Alleluyah We come to worship from many places just like the shepherds and kings And on this morning we add our praises and so the whole wide world sings Alleluyah Etc. Jesus is calling you make a new start Christmas is swelling the love in our hearts So when you re joining the celebrations and hear the old church bell ring We'll still be praising our heav'nly Father to make the whole wide world sing Alleluyah etc.
