Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said,
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 for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night,
They see a bright new shining star,
They hear a choir sing the music seemed to come from afar.
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new King's born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night,
They found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight.
And then they found a little nook in a stable all forlorn,
And in a manger cold and dark, Mary's little boy was born.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new King's born today,
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say,
That man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Yes, man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
