There was a child born long ago
It is a story we all know
A sky bathed in celestial light
With one star burning ever bright.
That tiny babe lay mongst the sheep
With angels guarding Him asleep
The heavens knew and marked that place
With holiness time can’t erase.
That baby boy would grow to be
The saviour of humanity
A whole world knows His blessed name
There’s been none else of greater fame !
