Chorus
A father faithful and a mother pure
Came to Bethlehem
The time was near when their child
Was due in Bethlehem
They knocked on houses door to door
They'd come so far their feet were sore
They'd walked 'til they could walk no more
All over Bethlehem
They found no place to spend
The night in Bethlehem
Then tender mercy saw their plight
In Bethlehem
She led them to a stable block
Where simple farmers kept their stock
Where the beasts of the field
And the farm and the flock
Bedded in Bethlehem
Everyone come gather round the cradle
Of the King whose palace was a stable
Long ago in Bethlehem
A stranger took two strangers in
And in a manger
The King of kings was born in Bethlehem
In the sky a blinding light shone
Over Bethlehem
And angel voices filled the night
Singing in Bethlehem
From the east a camel train
Guided there by heaven's flame
From the hills the shepherds came down
Into Bethlehem
The Prince of peace was born that night
In Bethlehem
And Kings and shepherds saw the light
That shone out of Bethlehem
