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.
