early on one christmas morn lyrics – bruce cockburn

(cottentop mountain sanctified singers )

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
early on one christmas morn

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
jesus christ the son was born

three wise men saw the star at night
star that lit the heavens so bright
star that led them to where christ was born
early on one christmas morn

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
early on one christmas morn

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
jesus christ the son was born

in that city of bethlehem
wise men brought him jewels and gems
born in a manger humble and low
that is why we love him so

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
jesus christ the son was born

mary was his mother calm
cradling him gently in her arms
all hail and praise to him
peace on earth, goodwill to men

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
early on one christmas morn

early on one christmas morn
jesus christ the son was born
singing carols, christmas songs
jesus christ the son was born

jesus christ the son was born.
