"He was born in Bethlehem" (Christmas Song)



"He was born in Bethlehem"

 
It was a starry night so long ago when the angel first appeared
He proclaimed to the shepherds now listen and do not fear
I bring you joyful news this day as the angels burst into song
Glory to God in the highest your Saviour today is born


Chorus
He was born in Bethlehem on that Christmas day
The star shone on the stable as He slept upon the hay
Emmanuel was His name He was sent from heaven above
Jesus came amongst His own He was given out of love



The brightest star in the sky would guide them on their way
Singing and shouting as they went peace on earth today
Let’s all go to Bethlehem to see this wonderful thing
Hosannas rang throughout the air as the crowd began to sing



Chorus
He was born in Bethlehem on that Christmas day
The star shone on the stable as He slept upon the hay
Emmanuel was His name He was sent from heaven above
Jesus came amongst His own He was given out of love


 Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty Prince of Peace
Everlasting Saviour His Kingdom to increase
Emmanuel our God’s with us to walk on common ground
Unto us a child is born His love was so profound


 Chorus
He was born in Bethlehem on that Christmas day
The star shone on the stable as He slept upon the hay
Emmanuel was His name He was sent from heaven above
Jesus came amongst His own He was given out of love

Very nice lyrics, Chris! I like that last verse a lot, in regards to God's love being profound. =)

I'm glad that you liked the lyrics Adriel. Yes, God's love was profound, sometimes it's hard to find words to describe His love, when we try to describe the immense love He had and still has, I guess it's what we would call agape love. No strings attached, He just loves us.
