Long Ago in Bethlehem

Jesus came to earth as a tiny little child
Born to Mary and Joseph, in their care for a while
Lying in a manger, no room at the Inn
Christ came to earth to save us from Sin

Wise men from the east traveled to Bethlehem from a far
Looking to the heavens, following His star

An Angel appeared to the shepherds that night
God’s glory shone around them, a heavenly sight

“Be not afraid, you have nothing to fear
I come, to tell you, the Christ child is near”

Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host
Praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace, good will toward men (KJV Luke 20:13,14)

This story is shared each year at this time
Told to our children through music & rhyme
Wishing a Merry Christmas to those we love
Praising our Father in Heaven above
