It’s True

I have, for a long time, loved the clever and humane song writing of Sara Groves. I think her song, “It’s True” from album O Holy Night is just a perfect example.

Here are two verses and the chorus—

“In your heart you hope it's true

Though you hold no expectation

In the deepest part of you

There's an open hesitation


But it's true, kingdoms and crowns

The God who came down to find you

It's true angels on high

Sing through the night, Alleluia

You’ve heard it told, you think it's odd

The whole thing fraught with complication

The play begins with a baby God

And all His blessed implications”
