Leap of Faith



On a hillside late at night
To a group of lowly shepherds
Came a wondrous sight
Changing their lives forever.
They didn’t hesitate;
They didn’t wait;
They took a leap of faith
On that first Christmas Day.

Could an angel choir
Really set your soul on fire?
Would that be enough to hear
To rid you of your fear?
Is that what it would take
For you to make
Your own Leap of Faith?

In a foreign eastern land
To a group of magi wise,
Left all their plans
To follow a star that filled the skies.
They didn’t hesitate;
They didn’t wait;
They took a leap of faith
On that first Christmas Day.

Could a shining star
Make you travel from afar?
Would that be enough to see
For you to really believe?
Is that what it would take
For you to make
Your own leap of faith?

That child sacrificed for us all
On a cross at Calvary.
Do we today hear his call
Since He died for you and me?
We can’t hesitate;
We can’t afford to wait;
Lets take our leap of faith
On this Christmas Day

Could a lonely cross
Help you forget the cost?
Would that be enough love
Sent from God above?
Is that what it would take
For all of us to make
Our own Leap of faith?

Do we really need a sign
To change our minds?
Let’s take that leap of faith
On this Christmas day!
