C                F     Dm          G          C  
Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible says,   
C                F     Dm          C       G         C  
Mary`s boychild, Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.  

C         F        G      C       Am       Dm     G  
Hark now! Hear the Angels sing, a King was born today,  
    C                F    Dm     C        G         C  
and man will live forever more because of Christmas Day.  
C                           F         Dm  
While shepherds watch their flocks by night,  
           G                  C  
they see a bright new shining star.  
                  F      Dm  
They hear a choir sing a song,   
          C         G          C  
the music seemed to come from afar.   
C                  F     Dm            G              C  
Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night.  
C                      F        Dm  
They found no place to bear the child,   
      C      G           C  
not a single room was in sight.       
C                     F      Dm         G             C  
And then they found a little nook, in a stable all forlorn.  
C                F        Dm           C      G       C  
And in a manger, cold and dark, Mary`s little boy was born.  

C        F         G      C      Am        Dm        G  
Trumpets sound and Angels sing...listen to what they say,  
G    C                F    Dm     C        G         C  
that man will live forever more because of Christmas Day.
