"The Shelter" Lyrics

The Tractors

There's snow on the ground
And no rooms in town
Nowhere for spendin' the night
Except and old shed
With hay for a bed
And Mary she says that's all right

Joseph don't like it
His Mary's with child
What if this is the night she gives birth
But when he has nothin'
A man comes to see
Just how much a little is worth

The trip's been a hard one
They crossed the courtyard
To a barn at the back of the Inn
They lay down to sleep
Among cattle and sheep
And wait for this night to begin

Now she sees he's worried
With love in her eyes
She reaches out and touches his face
She says a barn is a mansion
If its walls shelter love
For some reason God has chosen this place

The baby's arrival
Fills up the night
And the light from a beautiful star
Lights up the darkness
So gloriously bright
And shines down on the world near and far

And directly below it
As if on a string
This shelter of such humble design
Givin' warmth and protection
To the child Jesus Christ
Our Lord and Savior, King of mankind
