Lyrics:

If we had been there long ago upon that blessed night,
Would we have seen the Christmas star and followed in its light?
Would you or I have traveled far to reach that crib of hay,
And stood with sheep and donkeys where the sleeping infant lay,
Ready to believe, ready to believe?

Would we have knelt in wonder when we saw the Christ Child's face,
And felt our hearts and lives touched by this miracle of grace?
Would we have recognized God's gift, our treasure to receive,

Would we just like the Wisemen have been ready to believe?
Ready to believe, ready to believe?

If I had been there long ago upon that blessed night,
I would have seen the Christmas star and followed in its light.
I would have recognized God's gift, His treasure to receive,
I would just like the Wisemen have been ready to believe,
Ready to believe, ready to believe.

Oh yes, I would have traveled far to reach that crib of hay!
I would have knelt in wonder when I saw the Christ Child's face!
And felt my heart and life touched and recognized God's grace;

I am just like the Wisemen, Lord I am, oh I am ready to believe!

Ready to believe, ready to believe.
