From the recording Christmas Melodies

Lyrics

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible says
Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas day

Ch
Hark now hear the angles sing
A king was born today
And man will live for ever more
Because of Christmas day

Trumpets sounds the angels sing
Listen to what they say
And man will live for ever more
Because of Christmas day

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
They see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir sing a song
The music seem to come from afar

When Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to lay the child
Not a single room was in sight

And then they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little boy was born

Ch
Hark now hear the angles sing
A king was born today
And man will live for ever more
Because of Christmas day

Trumpets sounds the angels sing
Listen to what they say
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day
