BORN IN BETHLEHEM
WRITERS JOHN PHILLIPS, D. WEISSMAN

Little baby born in Bethlehem,
Yes he was, yes he was.
Little baby born in Bethlehem,
Oh, yes, he was.
Little baby born in Bethlehem,
Born right next to a sheep and a lamb,
Oh, Born in Bethlehem.

He was preaching in the temple,
He was still a child.
Yes he was, yes he was.
He was preaching in the temple,
He was still a child.
Oh, yes he was.
He was preaching in the temple,
He was still a child.
Talk about peace and mercy mild,
Oh, Peace and mercy mild.

Well he started then a-walking cross the land,
Yes he did, yes he did
Well he started then a-walking cross the land,
Oh, yes he did.
Well he started then a-walking cross the land,
Son of God turned into man,
Oh,God turned into man.

He caused the blind to see and the lame to walk,
Yes he did, yes he did.
He caused the blind to see and the lame to walk,
Oh, yes he did.
He caused the blind to see and the lame to walk,
Just a blessing and a little small talk.
Oh, blessing and a little small talk.

Then the sky got dark and blacked out the sun,
Yes it did, yes it did.
Then the sky got dark and blacked out the sun,
Oh, yes it did.
Then the sky got dark and blacked out the sun,
Forgive them Father for what they've done,
Oh, forgive them for what they've done.

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Born in Bethlehem
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Born in Bethlehem
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Born in Bethlehem
