Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day.

R.:
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a king was born today
and man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night, they see a bright new shining star
they hear a choir sing a song, the music seemed to come from afar.
R.

Now Joseph and his wife Mary came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight.
R.
