Song Description

Singer recounts story of Jesus' birth: an unmarried homeless woman giving birth to the Son of God. That story is juxtaposed against a modern day Christmastime rush scene. Both the innkeeper in the first verse and the singer in the second verse wonder if

Lyrics

Seeing God

Verse 1
A stable
Not much light, Not much room Baby coming much too soon.
A stable
There on straw, baby lies, Innkeeper can?t believe his eyes.
And he folds his hands to pray
Thanking God he let them stay.
I can almost hear him say:

Chorus
Did I see God today
In this homeless man who came my way
In his wife who is so meek, so mild
In the presence of this child?
I?ll remember this for all of time
The angels singing with such joy sublime.
In this run down little barn of mine.
I have seen God.

Verse 2
It?s Christmas!
Love and joy, everywhere, much to do no time to spare.
It?s Christmas!
Wrap the gifts, send the card, string the lights around the yard.
But when evening prayers are said
And I?m lying in my bed
A thought runs through my head:

Chorus
Did I see God today?
In that homeless man who passed my way?
In the girl whose smile seemed so forlorn
In her child who?s just been born?
I must remember that no matter where
I go and what I do, it?s God who?s there
His presence is the answer to my prayer
Did I see God?

Bridge
He says to love one another, treat all as my brother
And do unto others as he has done for me.
He knew how hard true love could be
And that?s why he died for me
The little child who loves me so, well, he just wants me to know

Chorus
That God is here today
In the challenges that come my way
In every moment of my work and play
He is by my side
He will teach me how to love and live
In a way that means I?ll truly give
The love he gave me back to those I see
And there He?ll be.
