Jesus Was Born In Bethlehem
(a Christmas carol written in the musical style
of "The Twelve Days Of Christmas")

 

Way down in the land of Judea, oh yeah!
God sent to the earth a Savior, for all men

1.  One star for the Holy Light
Jesus was born in Bethlehem

2. Two proud parents, Joseph and Mary (1)

3. Three wisemen from the east (2, 1)

4. Four shepherds with their sheep  (3, 2, 1)

5. Thousands of angels singing "Glory to God"  (4, 3, 2, 1)

The Lord sent this song as I was driving down Route 140
 in Bellingham MA, on the way to make a bank deposit.
It came so quickly that I had to pull over in a nearby parking lot
to write it down (before I forgot the melody and words!)

It was first publicly sung on Christmas Day 1993 at New Hope Chapel.
Dave Hughes and Bob Burns sang along with me.

 

 

Recorded on:  "New Works Of Grace.

 

This song and several others are used 
as background MIDIs on PRAYER LINES web sites
