G                C                 D          G
Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say,

G                C                 G       D7        G
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.


G         C        D7     G       Em       C    D
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today, and

G        D/A  G/B C           G        D7        G
man will live for evermore, because of Christmas day.

G        C         D7     G     Em        C         D
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say, that

G        D/A      C           G        D7        G
man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night,
them see a bright new shining star,
them hear a choir sing, the music seemed to come from afar.
Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, come to Bethlehem that night,
them find no place to born the child, not a single room was in sight.

By and by they find a little nook in a stable all forlorn,
and in a manger cold and dark, Mary's little boy was born.
Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.
