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
A new King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

While shepherds watch their flock by night
They saw a bright new shining star
And heard a choir from Heaven sing
The music came from afar

Hark now hear the angels sing
A new King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bare her child
Not a single room was in sight

By and by they find a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little Boy Child was born

Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen what they say
That man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day
