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, the new king born today.
And we shall live for evermore because of Christmas day!
While shepards watched their flocks by night,
They saw a bright new shining star
And then they heard a choir sing,
the music seemed to come from afar
Then by and by in Bethlehem,
In a stable all forlorn.
In a manger cold and dark,
Mary's little boy child was born
