Representative Text

1 Once a little baby lay,
Cradled in the fragrant hay,
Long ago on Christmas.
Stranger bed a babe ne’er found,
Wond’ring cattle stood around,
Long ago on Christmas.

2 By the shining vision taught,
Shepherds for the children sought,
Long ago on Christmas.
Guided in a star-lit way,
Wise men came their gifts to pay,
Long ago on Christmas.

3 And today the whole glad earth
Praises God for that Child’s birth
Long ago on Christmas.
For the Light, the Truth, the Way,
Came to bless the earth that day,
Long ago on Christmas.
