Lyrics

Long time ago in Bethlehem

So the Holy Bible say

Mary's Boy Child, Jesus Christ

Was born on Christmas Day

Hark, now hear the angels sing

"New King's born today

And man will live forevermore

Because of Christmas Day."

While shepherds watched their flock by night

Them see a bright new shining star

Them heard a choir sing

The music seemed to come from afar

Hark, now hear the angels sing

"New King's born today

And man will live forevermore

Because of Christmas Day."

Joseph and his wife Mary

Came to Bethlehem that night

They found no place to bear her Child

Not a single room in sight

By and by they found a little nook

In a stable all forlorn

And in a manger cold and dark

Mary's little Boy was born

Trumpets sound and angels sing

Listen to what they say

That man will live forevermore

Because of Christmas Day
