about

Written in late 2011, "The Brightest Star" was intended to be a simple Christmas song retelling the story of our amazing Savior who came into a busy, distracted, and weary world. If we don't look up, we may just miss the perfect gift of heaven.

This recording is a collaboration of Vekora and Poor Old Lu.

lyrics

-----------

The world waits expectant
For a savior to come in and hear our cries

In the darkness that surrounds them
The only ones to see Him watch the skies

As the people rest their weary eyes
They dream of a tomorrow much the same

But grace has come to meet us
For a child has been born to us today

-----------

And now
We see that the brightest star leads us to Your light
And we come
To seek Your face, amazing grace
For none shines brighter than You
Than You

-----------

The world is torn and tired
Carrying a burden it cannot bear

In the darkness where our hope springs forth
Love is welcomed in to taste the air

As the people stare into the night
They’re counting all their blessings and their pain

But this child born in a stable
Is the One who gave it all to take our shame

-----------

As the people rest their weary eyes
They dream of a tomorrow much the same

But grace has come to meet us
For a child has been born to us today

-----------
