THE ONLY ONE
Hey, mister shepherd, where are you bound tonight?
Hey, mister shepherd, on such a beautiful night?
I look at your face and see a smile is there.
I look to your eyes, and there detect a tear.
"Oh, my friend, I’m crying for joy, for on this night the world’s been giving a boy
he’s the one, the one, the only one."
Hey, little lad, why are you running to town?
Hey, little lad, dancing up and down.
I see in your arms a cute little lamb,
now, who is it for, please tell us if you can?
"It’s for the baby boy who’s lying in the hay. So I brought this gift to wish Him happy birthday,
they say he’s the one, the one, the only one."
Excuse me, he says, your way are lost, I feel,
where are you from, what brings you here?
How grand you look, what wealth do you bring?
For whom do you seek, you might well be a king?
"Your light is true, we’re kings, one, two, three, we follow a star, a star of mystery
to the one, the one, the only one, the King of kings is He, King is He."
