Is Bethlehem Too Far Away?

I heard this song on the radio a few days ago and loved it. Unfortunately, I can’t find it on YouTube, so I’m afraid I must share just the lyrics. With Christmas upon us, I thought it’d be appropriate to present a reminder, not just for Christmas, but for the whole year ’round.

Song by Carolyn Arends

 

If we close our eyes, can we see the star
Can we find our path in its light
And if we are still, tell me, can we hear
The song of the angels tonight

Can we find our way to the baby king
Can we worship him now in the hay
And can we believe he can change everything
Or is Bethlehem too far away

If we dream our dreams with our wisest hearts
Will we dream of peace on earth
Will our lips proclaim glad tidings of
The Wonderful Counselor’s birth

Can we find our way to the baby king
Can we worship him now in the hay
And can we believe he can change everything
Or is Bethlehem too far away

O, little town of Bethlehem
How far it must have been
From heaven’s throne of glory
To your humble manger scene
If God saw fit to travel there
Should not also we?

If we seek him we will find him in
The least expected place
For his kingdom comes in the power and might
Of his sacrifice and grace

Can we find our way to the baby king
Can we worship him now in the hay
And can we believe he can change everything
Or is Bethlehem too far away
Is Bethlehem too far away
