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 for evermore
Because of Christmas Day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day.
While Shepherds watched their flock by night
They see a bright new star
Then hear a choir of angels sing
Music seems to come from a far.
Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Come to Bethlehem that night
They find no place to lay the child
Not a single room was in sight.
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 what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day.
By and by they find a little nook
In a stable so forlorned
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 what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day...
