Mary’s Boy Child.

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


[ Chorus]

Hark, now hear the angels sing,
A new King born today,
And man will live for evermore,
Because of Christmas day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing,
Listen what they say,
That man will live for evermore,
Because of Christmas day.


While shepherds watched their flock by night,
Them 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,
Then find no place to borne she child,
Not a single room was in sight.


[Repeat Chorus]

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 Bible say,
Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas day.

[Repeat Chorus]

END
