Marilyn Horne & Alexander Schreiner

The Bethlehem Babe, carol

Once in a manger lowly,
Hundreds of years ago,
A little babe so holy,
Came to this world below.

Near was a crowded city,
Bethlehem dark and walled
It was a such a pity
Chill was the night and cold

Angels sang of the sweet story
In a tale all his own
Jesus the Christ of glory
A little babe is born.

Joseph and Mary weary,
No one would take them in,
Slept in a stable dreary,
Not in a crowded inn

Out on the hillside brightened
Shepherds beheld a sight
All of the sky was lightened
On that December night

Angels sang of the sweet story
In a tale of his own
Jesus the Christ of glory
A little babe is born

Far from the east three strangers
Led by a star their way,
Kept safely from great dangers,
seeking the Christ they say,

Came to the manger lowly
Bringing their gifts of love
Worshiped the babe so holy
Gift of the world above

Glory to God in the highest
Peace and good will to men

Glory to God in the highest
Ever Amen, Amen
Ever Amen, Amen
