When Jesus Christ was Born

Stars have never told a lie when wise men look unto the sky. Messages from God on high, of happiness his angels cry, Soon dawns a blessed morn. Wise men travel through a land with stately camels over sand, Their caravan majestically grand When Jesus Christ was born. Shepherds watching over sheep, baby lambs they safely keep. Some of them were fast asleep on a mountain rough and steep, Soon dawns a blessed morn. An Angel to these men appear Saying they should have no fear For the Christ child is now near, When Jesus Christ was born. To Bethlehem they journey long, Joseph with his love so strong, Mary with child had done no wrong; the baby did to God belong Soon dawns a blessed morn. This baby comes to save from sin No rooms were found in any Inn A stables all they found for him When Jesus Christ was born. A star shone brightly overhead, lighting up this humble shed, A lowly manger for his bed, the joyful news had quickly spread When dawned that blessed morn. Here wise men came and gifts did bring Shepherds bowed to their new King Mankind rejoices while angels sing When Jesus Christ was born. Contest: One of your Best 12.01.2014
