For years, Kathie Lee Gifford has been a regular face on morning television but she is also a gifted singer, songwriter, and performer.

While hosting the 95th annual National Christmas tree lighting Thursday night in front of the White House, the “Today Show” co-host debuted a powerful Christmas song, all about the true reason for the season, which she co-wrote specifically for the occasion.

She took to Twitter to share her enthusiasm about the song, saying, “I’m so excited to release the song JESUS IS HIS NAME…”

In front of President Donald Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and hundreds of people who had gathered for the event, Gifford and Grammy award-winning country star Brett James performed the song called, “Jesus is His Name.” 

“A young mother held her newborn son long ago and far away, and a light shone in the darkness on that first Christmas day,” sang Gifford.

She continued, “Then the wise men bowed before him and worshipped the newborn king, in the beauty of that silent night you could hear the angels sing.”

The powerful chorus rang out into the crowd, “Glory, Hallelujah, Jesus is His Name.”

“And His light shines in the wilderness on our brokenness and our emptiness and this dark world of hopelessness will never be the same.”

Here’s a video of Kathie Lee Gifford singing her new song with Brett James at the tree lighting ceremony:

Here are the lyrics to the song:

A young mother held her newborn son long ago and far away
And a light shone in the darkness on that first Christmas day
Then the wise men bowed before him and worshipped the newborn king
In the beauty of that silent night, you could hear the angels sing
Glory, Hallelujah
Jesus is His Name
And his light shines in the wilderness on our brokenness and our emptiness
And this dark world of hopelessness
Will never be the same
Jesus is His Name
And even now wise men still seek Him
Wise women seek Him too
Lord let your healing love and light lead their searching hearts to you
And help us see each other as our sister and our brother
And help us love one another just like you do 
Glory, Hallelujah Jesus is His Name
And His light shines in the wilderness on our brokenness and our emptiness
And this dark world of hopelessness
Will never be the same
Jesus is His Name
When we don’t know where to turn
And we don’t know what to do
Lord let your healing love and light
Lead our hurting hearts to you
Glory, Hallelujah, Jesus is His Name
And His light shines in the wilderness
On our brokenness and our loneliness
And this dark world of hopelessness
Will never be the same
Jesus is His Name
A young mother held her newborn son long ago and far away
And a light shone in the darkness on that long ago Christmas day
And Jesus is His Name
