A. - Long time ago in Bethlehem

Long time ago in Bethlehem

So the Holy Bible say

Mary's Boy Child, Jesus Christ

Was born on Christmas Day

 

CHORUS:

Hark, now hear the angels sing

a new King born today

and we can live eternally

because of Christmas Day.

Trumpets sound and angels sing

listen to what they say

That we can live eternally

because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watched

their flocks by night

they saw a bright new shining star

They heard a choir sing

the music seemed to come from afar

Now Joseph and his wife Mary came to Bethlehem that night

They found no place to have her

Child not a single room was in sight.

 

CHORUS:

By and by they found 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

CHORUS:

B. It Came Upon The Midnight C lear

It came upon the midnight clear,

that glorious song of old

From angels bending near the earth

to touch their harps of gold

“Peace on the earth, goodwill to all,

from heaven's all gracious king”

The world in solemn stillness lay

to hear the angels sing.

 

Yet with the woes of sin and strife,

the world has suffered long

Beneath the angels swing and roll,

two thousand years have gone

And man at war with man hears not

The love songs that they bring

O hush the noise, ye men of strife

And hear the angels sing!

 

O ye beneath life’s crushing load,

whose forms are bending low

Who toil along the climbing way,

with painful steps and slow

Take heart! For comfort,

love and so, come swiftly on the wing

Oh rest beside the weary road

and hear the angels sing.

C . Angels Over Fields

Refrain:

Glor-ia in excelsis Deo!

Glor-ia in excelsis Deo!

Angels over fields were singing

Singing hymns from heaven on high

And the mountains echo ringing

Answered to their joyful cry

Shepherds why this celebration?

Why this burst of heavenly song?

What could cause such jubilation?

What inspired the heavenly throng? (Refrain)

They are bringing wondrous tidings

Tidings of an infant King

who will bring us peace abiding

'Tis of Jesus Christ they sing (Refrain)

 

We will seek the happy village

Of his birth this holy day

We will offer deepest homage

As our hearts and voices say... (Refrain)

Rise Up Shepherd And Follow

MEN: Rise up shepherd and follow (repeat a few times...)

 

LEADER: There's a star in the east on a Christmas morn

REFRAIN: Rise up shepherd and follow!

It'll lead to the place where the Saviour was born (REFRAIN)

If you take good heed of the angel's word (REFRAIN)

You'll forget you flock, you'll forget your herd (REFRAIN)

You can leave your sheep and leave your rams (REFRAIN)

You can leave your ewes and leave your lambs (REFRAIN)

Get up and follow the star to Bethlehem (REFRAIN)

 

CHORUS:

Come on and...FOLLOW! FOLLOW! FOLLOW! FOLLOW!

RISE UP SHEPHERD AND FOLLOW!

E. Men From The East

Men from the east came to Mary

They travelled a long time ago

They followed a star shining bright in the sky

To show them the way to go

CHORUS: Lord have mercy send a light in the dark

Be with us as we travel through the night

And help us to see in this holy child

Your own clear shining light.

We in our time come to Jesus

We may not have travelled so far

But we're glad to be led by the light of the truth

As those men were led by a star.

We in our time come to Jesus

We offer our gifts to the Son

And our homage we pay to the

Saviour who made

A lowly stable his home.
