    In the middle of a forest
    There's a clearing by a stream
    Where a mother holds her newborn
    And the child begins to dream

    And he dreams of hopes unspoken
    When the tears of man will cease
    And his mother holds him closer
    For he is the Prince of peace

    And the moon is looking downward
    Casting shadows through the trees
    And the stars are shining brighter
    As they whisper what they see

    How the emperor and the pauper
    With the lion and the lamb
    Kneel down before the infant
    For his peace they understand

    Hark, the herald angels sing
    Glory to the newborn king
    Peace on earth and mercy mild
    God and sinners reconciled
    Glory all ye nations rise
    Join the triumph of the skies

    With the heavenly host proclaim
    Christ is born in Bethlehem
    Hark, the herald angels sing
    Glory to the newborn king

    Let the bells ring out these tidings
    Let it echo across the land
    That a king is born in Bethlehem
    And his kingdom is at hand

    Let the world rejoice together
    As it looks upon the stars
    Knowing every man's our brother
    And that every child is ours

    As he flew o'er Sarajevo
    There were scars upon the land
    There were scars upon the people
    It was hard to understand

    And the deepest scars of all
    Which to humans are unseen
    But the angel could see clearly
    Were the scars upon the dreams

    Like Belfast and Burundi
    Rwanda, Palestine
    The only decorations here
    Had been awarded for their crimes

    And in gardens where the children played
    Now soldiers only trod
    And stranger still, he heard some say
    That they were killing for their god

    Now the angel heard god speak many times
    And he had always paid attention
    But this killing of ones neighbor
    Was something the Lord had never mentioned

    But as he neared the earth
    Of a recent battleground
    From among the ruins
    He once more heard the sound

    It was a single cello playing
    A forgotten Christmas song
    And even on that battlefield
    The song somehow belonged

    And as he flew away
    The angel did take note
    That where he found this music played
    One always could find hope
