116. The Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy

1 The virgin Mary had a baby boy,
the virgin Mary had a baby boy,
the virgin Mary had a baby boy,
and they say that his name was Jesus.

Refrain:
He come from the glory,
he come from the glorious kingdom.
He come from the glory,
he come from the glorious kingdom.
Oh, yes! believer!
Oh, yes! believer!
He come from the glory,
he come from the glorious kingdom.

2 The angels sang when the baby born,
the angels sang when the baby born,
the angels sang when the baby born,
and they say that his name was Jesus. [Refrain]

3 The wise men saw where the baby born,
the wise men saw where the baby born,
the wise men went where the baby born,
and they say his name was Jesus. [Refrain]
