"Mary's Boy Child" 
 
Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bibles 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 forever more because of Christmas Day. 
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen what they say. 
That man will live forever more, because of Christmas Day. 
 
While shepherds watch their flock by night, 
And see a bright new shining star, then hear a choir sing , 
The music seemed to come from afar. 
 
Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, come to Bethlehem that night, 
They found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight. 
 
Hark. now hear the angels sing, a new King born today, 
And man will live forever more, because of Christmas Day. 
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say. 
That man will live forever more, because of Christmas Day. 
 
By and by they find a little nook, in a stable all forlorn, 
And in a manger cold and dark, Mary's little boy was born. 
Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bibles say, 
Mary's child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day. 
 
Hark. now hear the angels sing, a new King born today, 
And man will live forever more, because of Christmas Day. 
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say. 
That man will live forever more, because of Christmas Day.
