Looking for a christmas song about the first nightingale’s song?

I heard a song on a radio sation in Peoria Il, playing non stop christmas music. I tried to find the number for the station, but I can't remember the call numbers and i've changed the station since. I feel so stupid!! Anyway, the song starts out a cappella, being sung by what sounds like a fairly young girl. It is about Maria who finds a little injured bird, makes a cage from rushes and twine and then takes it as a gift for the christ child to a church. When she lets it out, it takes off to the heavens and sings the first nightingales song. What is the name of the song and where might i find the tune and lyrics. Any help would be a blessing!

  • Toad the Wet Sprocket has a song called "The Nightingale Song" on their album "Fear." But it's not a Christmas song.

  • I heard this song on a Dallas station, and it wasn't sung by Garth Brooks- the DJ said it was a 12 year old, but I didn't catch the name! I wish I had, because I LOVED it and I want to find it on a cd.

  • "The Gift" as performed by Garth Brooks on his album "Beyond the Season"

    A poor orphan girl named maria

    Was walking to market one day

    She stopped for a rest by the roadside

    Where a bird with a broken wing lay

    A few moments passed till she saw it

    For it's feathers were covered with sand

    But soon clean and wrapped it was travelling

    In the warmth of maria's small hand

    She happily gave her last peso

    On a cage made of rushes and twine

    She fed it loose corn from the market

    And watched it grow stronger with time

    Now the christmas eve service was coming

    And the church shone with tinsel and light

    And all of the townfolks brought presents

    To lay by the manger that night

    There were diamonds and incense

    And perfumes

    In packages fit for a king

    But for one ragged bird in a small cage

    Maria had nothing to bring

    She waited till just before midnight

    So no one would see her go in

    And crying she knelt by the manger

    For her gift was unworthy of him

    Then a voice spoke to her through the darkness

    Maria, what brings you to me

    If the bird in the cage is your offering

    Open the door and let me see

    Though she trembled, she did as he asked her

    And out of the cage the bird flew

    Soaring up into the rafters

    On a wing that had healed good as new

    Just then the midnight bells rang out

    And the little bird started to sing

    A song that no words could recapture

    Whose beauty was fit for a king

    Now maria felt blessed just to listen

    To that cascade of notes sweet and long

    As her offerings was lifted to heaven

    By the very first nightingale's song
