Lyrics:-

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
A new king born today
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and the angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day

While Shepherds watched their flocks by night
They see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir singing
the music seemed to come from afar
Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear the child
Not a single room was in sight

Hark now hear the angels sing
A new king born today
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and the angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day

By and by they found a little nook
In a stable so forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary’s little child was born

A long time ago in Bethlehem
So the holy Bible say
That Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

Hark now hear the angels sing
A new king born today
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and the angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day.
