The First Christmas Day
Angels, they were heard on high
as a great star shone in the east
Three kings of the Orient traversed afar
to the Child that was berthed with the beast
The little town of Bethlehem lay still
on that silent and holy night
but would awaken on a glorious morn’
to a new and wondrous sight.
The shepherds too, had heard the song
whilst tending to their sheep
He’s born, He’s born, the angels did sing
and roused them from their sleep.
Oh, joy to the world the angels proclaimed
a Savior has been born unto you!
Yes, One is born to you this day
to cleanse the world anew.
To save you all from Satan’s power
as you have gone astray.
Yes, Christ the King is born this hour
on this, the first Christmas Day.
