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 a King.

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. (Refrain)
