In Bethlehem, one early morn,
The Son of God (a King) was born
As He lay smiling; fast asleep
Among the flocks of
goats and sheep.
Now, the brightest star, in Bethlehem,
Was shining on God's little lamb.
The wise men came from far away,
Falling down to
worship Him and pray.
They'd brought Him gifts of gold and frankincense
Because they knew what His birth meant.
They knew that God had sent His Son
To be a Savior for
Now, the Heaven's opened and the angels sang,
"Halleluiah," to the newborn King;
God's little lamb, for the world to see,
The healing gift of
Salvation for you and me.
Now, let's remember what this day is for,
To celebrate the birth of our sweet Lord.
And let's remember God's greatest sacrifice,
Giving up His Son for
our eternal life.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world,
That He gave His only begotten son,
that whosever believed upon Him
would not perish, but have everlasting life.
