Verse 1:
A King is born this day in Bethlehem,
No crown is worn but angels worship Him,
Halle, hallelujah!
Almighty God, so meek, so mild,
Salvation comes through this holy Child.

A King is born, (He is in the manger now)
A King is born, (humbly come and humbly bow)
A tiny Lord, (reaching out a tiny hand)
A King is born this day, in Bethlehem.

Verse 2:
His palace is lowly, His throne is made of hay,
Hallelujah! (Halle, hallelujah)
The shepherds bow down to see His holy face,
Halle, hallelujah!
Heaven is singing of peace on earth,
Filled with the wonder of this birth.

(Repeat Chorus)

Come humbly and humbly bow;
He's in the manger now
(Repeat 3 times)

(Repeat Verse 1)
(Repeat Chorus)

Chorus 2:
A King is born,
A King is born,
A tiny Lord,
A King is born this day in Bethlehem
This day in Bethlehem,
This day in Bethlehem.
