Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said,
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas day
Hark now, hear the angels sing, a king was born today
And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas day
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas day.
While shepherds watch their flock by night, they see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir sing a song, the music seemed to come from afar
Hmm, hmm, hmm...
For a moment the world was aglow
All the bells rang out, there were tears of joy and laughter
People shouted: "Let everyone know, there is hope for all to find peace!"
Oh, my Lord, You sent Your son to save us
Oh, my Lord, Your very self You gave us
Oh, my Lord, that sin may not enslave us, and love may reign once more (fine)
Oh, my Lord, when in the crib they found Him
Oh, my Lord, a golden halo crowned Him
Oh, my Lord, they gathered all around Him to see him and adore
Oh, my Lord, they had become to doubt You
Oh, my Lord, what did they know about You
Oh, my Lord, but they were lost without You, they needed you so bad
Oh, my Lord, with the child's adoration
Oh, my Lord, there came great jubilation
Oh, my Lord, and full of admiration, they realized what they had
