Mary’s Boy Child

Mary’s Boy Child

Jester Hairston

Long time ago in Bethlehem,
So the Holy Bible said
Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas day

Hark now hear the angels sing,
A new king born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

Trumpets sound and angels sing,
Listen to what they say
That Man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
They see a bright new shining star
They hear a choir sing a song,
The music seemed to come from afar

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary,
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear the child,
Not a single room was in sight

Hark now hear the angels sing,
A new king born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

Trumpets sound and angels sing,
Listen to what they say
And Man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

By and by they find a little nook,
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark,
Mary’s little Boy child was born

Long time ago in Bethlehem,
So the Holy Bible said
Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ,
Was born on Christmas day

Hark now hear the angels sing,
A new king born today
And man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day

Trumpets sound and angels sing,
Listen to what they say
That Man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day
That Man will live forevermore
Because of Christmas day
