Seekers, The - When A Child Is Born Lyrics

The ray of hope flickers in the sky
A tiny star lights up way up high
All across the land dawns a brand new morn'
This comes to pass when a child is born

A silent wish sails the seven seas
The winds of change whisper in the trees
And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn
This comes to pass when a child is born

A rosy hue settles all around
You've got the feel you're on solid ground
For a spell or two no one seems forlorn
This comes to pass when a child is born

It's all a dream and illusion now
It must come true sometime soon somehow
All across the land dawns a brand new morn'
This comes to pass when a child is born

All across the land dawns a brand new morn'
This comes to pass when a child is born
This comes to pass when a child is born

    How good is this? Best version ever, I think.

  17. Fiona Johnston

    I wouldn't normally listen to what is technically a Christmas song at this time of year but I couldn't resist listening to how you treated this beautiful song and as always, you did not disappoint, and yes, as always, you brought tears to the eyes. Your Queen's honour is richly deserved, keep going from strength to strength, I will now be looking out for a CD for my birthday in October.

    Please do not miss this.
    WHY DO I NEED JESUS CHRIST IN MY LIFE ? Man needs to consider the answers to life's important questions. We ask ourselves who we are, where we came from, where are we going, AND WHY ARE WE HERE ? There is no greater place to seek the answers to these profound questions than the Bible, a book provided by God to help us in our endeavor to seek truth for our lives here and for all eternity.

    WE ARE HERE TAKING A TEST. ARE YOU PASSING ? We are here taking a test given free will to make choices and decisions you are in the middle of a spiritual warfare between God / Jesus and Satan and his evil agencies. Both have access to you. The condition of your heart as described in the parable of the sower in Luke 8th chapter will determine who you want to identify with and therefore determine your eternal destiny
    . The scriptures are perfectly clear that obedience to Jesus and His teachings are the ONLY WAY to Heaven. John 14:6, Acts 4:12, I Tim 1:3-5, Heb 5:8-9.

    LIGHT OR DARKNESS, WHERE DO YOU LIVE ? Many people live in darkness. separated or disconnected from their Heavenly Father by their sins causing them to be at war with Him. Man is a sinner filled with much of the same character defects which got Satan and a third of the angels thrown out of Heaven. They are here on planet earth continuing their disobedience and rebellion til Jesus returns.

    There are two spiritual kingdoms around us at this moment in time. There is the spiritual kingdom of light where Christ rules and the spiritual kingdom of darkness where Satan rules. All of us exist in one of these Kingdoms. Matt. 7: 13-14, The pathway to Heaven is narrow and few find it but the pathway to Hell is a broad road where many dwell and travel. In simple terms, few dwell in the Kingdom of Light but many in the kingdom of darkness. Satan and the fallen angels have been given a certain amount of freedom and access to us as they are the negative part of the test we are all here taking with the " free will " God gave us.

    Both Christ and Satan have superior power to any human being. Satan is a liar, deceiver, tempter, robber, destroyer, and killer of men's souls. He is the god of this world, and is capable of blinding people so they cannot see Jesus Christ. II Cor 4: 3-5. Since so many people live in that Spiritual Kingdom of Darkness they only have access to the knowledge and understanding that this Kingdom provides. They may consider the substance and theology of the Kingdom of light to be foolishness.

    I Corinthians 2:14 " Now the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him; and he cannot know them, because they are spiritually judged." And how are they going to visualize or comprehend the Holy Spirit who indwells every genuine believer and follower of Jesus and His teachings. Acts 5:32, We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.” Jesus said, John 14: 15 “If you love me, keep my commands. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. ( Holy Spirit ) The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. Most people live separated from God / Jesus by their sins causing a void or emptiness in their life. They live disconnected. I John 5:12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

    Dear friends, Your sins and mine put Jesus, who had no sin and was that innocent lamb slaughtered on the cross so that you and I may have opportunity for forgiveness of our sins and hope of eternal life with our Heavenly Father. The only escape any of us have from the power of Satan and the power of sin is to surrender our life to Jesus Christ.

    On the day of Pentecost in Acts 2 there were 3,000 people wanting to know what to do to be saved. Peter told them to repent, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of your sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 3,000 did this, ( immersed in water ), and Jesus added them to His Church, which is God's Kingdom here on earth also known as the Kingdom of light. Colossians 1:10-14. The HOLY SPIRIT is given to those who obey God, Acts 5:32, to be the enabler and helper in a Christian's life connecting' them to the Heavenly Father with Jesus as Lord, Savior, Mediator, Rescuer, and High Priest.

    Any humble penitent heart can get God / Jesus's attention to be saved.

    Good grief. What a deluded, brainwashed idiot you are. Keep your religious views to yourself. How can anyone waste their time writing such a long message about their beliefs? This is a Seekers video not a religious pilgrimage. Go away....

  19. Dave Koopmans

    Judith is an angel.

  20. Nick Goddin

    I love the Seekers. Judith Durham has a wonderful voice. They are a great band. Wonderful.

  21. Richard Barr

    The greatest of many good groups from the sixties. Talent by the ooddles. Sincerity by the barrow load free from sleaze by the width of Australia. As an Englishman I am proud to say, they are the best of all time.

  22. BHALT0S

    pity it's all just a lie, no one is coming to save this cess pit of a world.

  23. Kaye Davis

    Another example of Judith and the boys taking a song and making it their very own. This is by far the best version I've ever heard. Thanks for posting.

  24. jozsef nagy

    The Seekers are the best folk band in the world.

  44. Scott Denny

    Not to many people could surpass Johnny Mathis on this song but Judith Durham and The Seekers went far above what anyone including Johnny Mathis could have done with this song.Magnificant.......The Seekers have never lost that vocal quality.

    Ricky Tan much as I love Judith and Seekers, Johnny Mathis version is beyond compared.

    Ron Haugen

    Ricky Tan - I agree with you; Johnny Mathis and Gladys Knight version is the best I've ever heard.

    Sandy Harlow

    Ohhh I love this...Scott, you are so right!! Judith just has that beautiful quality with a passion for this song that no one else has. I just love this!! This with MEAV'S "What Child Is This" is my favorite of all songs. Thank you Dreamslive.

    David Baxter

    i agree whole heartedly, try listening to Demis Roussos singing this song :)

  45. granitestater1029

    Just exquisite. This recording NEEDS to be re-exposed to the world.

  46. Connie Washburn

  55. krychu07

    /watch?v=0fGuaIMXeEk cover poland Bayer Full - "Blondyneczka"

  56. loosewheels1000

    You sure ain't going to see Lady gaga singing Christmas songs in 2050, there again will anyone remember her !!!

  57. slaynt

    Just think of a song and the probability is that the seekers sang it. Better than anyone else. Amazing repertoire.

  58. Raymond LaBay

    In the purple haze of a Christmas twilight time The golden rays of a star shone brighter than any other in the sky ,a promise from above that he loves us he really loves us.Take care ADonovan43. Merry Christmas.

  61. dakdan549

    The Aussies say that the Seekers are a national treasure---I agree in part---they are a world treasure that, by the grace of God, you down under have been gracious enough to share with the rest of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  62. John Schlobohm

    Kenny Rogers also has a version of this song. Also very well done.
