mary’s boy child lyrics – celtic woman

“mary’s boy child”

long time ago in bethlehem, so the holy bible says
mary’s boy child jesus christ was born on christmas day

hark, now hear the angels sing a new king born today
and man will live for evermore because of christmas day

while shepherds watch their flocks by night
they saw a bright new shining star
and heard a chior from heaven sing
the music came from afar

hark, now hear the angels sing a new king born today
and man will live for evermore because of christmas day

now joseph and his wife, mary
came to bethlehem that night
they found no place to bear her child
not a single room was in sight

hark, now hear the angels sing a new king born today
and man will live for evermore because of christmas day

by and by they found a nook in a stable all forlorn
and in a manger cold and dark, mary’s little child was born

trumpets sound and angels sing
listen to what they say
that man will live for evermore because of christmas day
hark, now hear the angels sing a new king born today
and man will live for evermore because of christmas day
and man will live for evermore because of christmas day.
