1st Verse

A long time ago, in a place far away
Two weary travelers, with no place to stay
The Inns were all full, to a stable they went
Such a lowly beginning to the Holy Event

2nd Verse

A star in the east, a beacon of light
Over Bethlehem shining on that holy night
From angels to shepherds, good tidings of joy
Three wise men were coming to see the baby boy


Glory to God, peace on earth
Praise we His name at Jesus' birth
Joy to the world, as we bring Him laud
The babe in the manger, the Son of God


The baby was lying in swaddling clothes there
The young King of Kings, our crosses would bear

Chorus (repeat)

3rd Verse (tag)

A long time ago, in a place far away
Two weary travelers, with no place to stay
And Jesus was born to Mary that night
He died for us all, he gave us His light
