If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

NB This song has two different choir arrangements. 'Choir score' is a straight four-part harmony 'Concert Bundle' has a more creative arrangement designed to fit with a band and lead vocalist.

See the star
pierce the darkness,
shining hope to all the earth.
See the sky
blaze with glory,
angels praise the saviour’s birth,

See the joy,
shepherds worship,
amazed at all that they have seen.
See the hope,
wise men journey,
bringing treasures to the King.

See the dawning of the Son,
darkness flees for love has come.
The power of death will be undone:
Christ is born!

See the trust,
humble Mary
gazes at her Saviour's face.
See the love
freely given,
Christ reveals the Father's grace.

God with us in flesh and blood,
giving up his throne above,   
here to save us by his love:
Christ is born!

Glory in the highest heaven,
all the earth resound;
Glory in the highest heaven,
God is with us now!

The Christmas story is one of hope bursting in, of light in the darkness, of new life and old promises being fulfilled. I wanted this song to build with that sense of glorious anticipation before exploding with praise, echoing the songs of the angels, and I hope it encourages many a church roof to be lifted off this Christmastime! Thanks to Matt and Dan Weeks for their fantastic creative input in shaping the song during the recording process.

We are singing this for Epiphany on Sunday. Comments from our musicians have been very favourable so far - one even said it sounds like Coldplay.

Just a quick follow-up. We used this is two of our three Christmas services and when people found out it wasn't in the third one I got complaints! Great job Matt and thanks to Resound for making this available.
