1. In the little village of Bethlehem
There lay a child one day,
And the sky was bright
with a holy light,
O'er the place, where Jesus lay:

Refrain: Alleluia! O how the angels sang,
Alleluia! how it rang,
And the sky was bright with a holy light,
'Twas the birthday of the King. (X2)

2. 'Twas a humble birthplace,
but oh! how much God gave to us that day,
From the manger bed,
what a path has led.
What a perfect holy way: (repeat refrain)
