Long Time Ago
 
Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas day
And men will live for evermore
Because of Christmas day
      
Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bibly say
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
      
      Trumpets sound and angels sing
      Listen to what they say
      Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ
      Was born on Christmas day
      
While shepherds watched their flocks by night
They see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir sing a song
The music seems to come from afar
      
      For a moment the world was aglow
      And all the bells rang out all the tears
      And joy and laughter
      People shouted let everyone know
      That there is hope for all to find peace
      
Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to lay their child
Not a single room was in sight
      
And then they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary’s little boy was born
      
      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
      Oh my Lord, when in the crib they found Him
      Oh my Lord, a golden halo around Him
      Oh my Lord, they gathered all around Him
      To see Him adore
