mary’s boy child lyrics – tom jones

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

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

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

trumpets sound and angels sing
listen to what they say
and man will live forever more
because of christmas day
