In a little town called Bethlehem
So far across the sea,
In a manger, in a stable there
A King was soon to be.
As there among the cattle
Upon a bed of hay,
Lay Mary waiting for her child
Who would show the world the way.
As in the fields, the shepherds kept
Watch o’re their sheep so fair,
A star shone brightly in the sky
To guide them safely there.
It shone so brightly in the sky
To guide them on their way,
To guide them safely to the place
Where the newborn King did lay.
They worshiped Him, They brought
Him gifts, As cattle hovered by, And
Mary cradled the Newborn King to
Hush her baby’s cry.
This tiny child was soon to be
The Saviour of all men,
He traveled from cradle to the grave
To give His life for them.
This tiny baby in a manger bed
Lying there upon the hay,
Is now living in Heaven
He will return someday.
