Abstract

In the little village of Bethlehem,
There lay a child one day,
And the sky was bright with a holy light,
O'er the place where Jesus lay:
Alleluia!
O how the angels sang,
Alleluia! how it rang;
And the sky was bright with a holy light,
'Twas the birthday of a King.

'Twas a humble birth-place,
But oh! how much God gave us that day,
From the manger bed, what a path has led
What a perfect holy way:
Alleluia!
O how the angels sang,
Alleluia! how it rang;
And the sky was bright with a holy light,
"Twas the birthday of a King.
