In Bethlehem, a baby boy was born
He had no cradle for His own,
Wise men came and brought Him gifts,
The star shone bright while Jesus slept.
Mary watched her precious baby boy
She gently rocked Him in her arms,
Mary and Joseph gave thanks that night,
A son was born to bring us light.
The Christ child brought peace to earth
We celebrate His joyful birth,
He came to save, He is a holy treasure,
He sends His love, beyond measure.
It is Christmas time we sing of peace
We celebrate our Lord's birthday,
Let us sing and shout to the great I am,
And stay close to the baby of Bethlehem.
Christmas is a time of love and sharing
To give Him thanks for He is Lord,
The Bethlehem star still shines today,
The world's greatest gift was born on the hay.
