Mary’s Boy Child / Oh My Lord

*

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible says
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

While shepherds watch their flocks by night
They see a brand new shining star
They hear a choir sing a song
The music seemed to come from afar
Now Josef and his wife Mary
They come to Bethlehem that night
They have no room to bear the child
Not a single room was inside

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

Trumpets sound, an angel sing
Listen to what they say
And man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day
