Lyrics:

1.I wish I could have been there to hear the angels sing,
  To see the shepherds kneeling and the gifts the kings would bring,
  To see the shepherds kneeling and the gifts the kings would bring.
           I wish I could have been there shouting Hosannahs to His name,
           To praise and honor give Him, my Lord, my Love proclaim!

2.I wish I could have been there to see that shining star,
  To bow and worship Jesus after trav'ling from afar,
  To bow and worship Jesus after trav'ling from afar.
           I wish I could have been there shouting Hosannahs to His name,
           To praise and honor give Him, my Lord, my Love proclaim!

3.I wish I could have been there to witness of His birth,
  To welcome my dear Savior to His home while here on earth,
  To welcome my dear Savior to His home while here on earth.

4.I wish I could have been there to rev'rently rejoice,
  To multiply His praises with my heart and soul and voice,
  To multiply His praises with my heart and soul and voice,
            I wish I could have been there shouting Hosannahs to His name,
           To praise and honor give Him, my Lord, my Love proclaim!
