The Baby in a Manger
Many many years ago
In a manger far away.
A baby boy named Jesus
Was born on Christmas Day.
The shepherds came from very far
To see this baby boy,
For He would be a king some day
And He would reighn on high.
The little boy became a man
And did His Father's will,
To bring good tidings to the poor
And today they do it still.
Some did not believe in Him
So they mock His holy name.
They nailed Him to a rugged cross
Without remorse or shame.
He died so you and I could live
In peace forevermore.
And you would have a home in Heaven
When this life is over.
If you don't believe the story
That's okay, you see
For some day soon He will return
For those who are set free.
