"Mary's Little Boy Child" as written by and Jester Hairston....
Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible says
Mary's Boy Child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day.

Hark, now hear the angels sing
New King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day.

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
They saw a bright new shining star
And heard a choir from heaven sing
The music came from afar.

Hark, now hear the angels sing,
New King's born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day.

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.

By and by they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little Boy Child was born.

Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day...
