G C Long time ago in Bethlehem, D G so the Holy Bible say, G C Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, G D G was born on Christmas Day. Chorus: G C D G Hark, now hear the angels sing, Em C D a new king born today, and G D C man will live for evermore, G D G because of Christmas day. G C D G Trumpets sound and angels sing, Em C D listen to what they say, that G D C man will live for evermore, G D G because of Christmas Day. While shepherds watch their flocks by night, them see a bright shining star, them hear a choir sing that night, the music 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 nook, in a stable all forlorn, and in a manger cold and dark, the little baby was born. Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say, Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.
