John Denver – The Children Of Bethlehem lyrics

The children of Bethlehem
One cold winter's night
Were wakened by singing
And a heavenly light
With whispers and murmurs
On pattering feet
The children of Bethlehem
Came into the street

The people were sleeping
All safely in bed
The children heard singing
In the sky overhead
They heard
"Peace will be with you
Whoever you are
Oh, come to the stable
Come, follow the Star!"

And the children of Bethlehem
That cold winter's night
Came down to the stable
They followed the light
Now the roosters were crowing
At the dawning of day
The baby lay sleeping
In the manger he lay

The children of Bethlehem
Came in two by two
They came to the manger
That the Star brought them to
They came to the manger
Where the sweet Baby lay
The children of Bethlehem
Showed us the way
