1.	In the little village of Bethlehem, 
	There lay a Child one day, 
	And the sky was bright with a holy light 
	O'er the place where Jesus lay. 

2.	'Twas a humble birthplace, but O how much 
	God gave to us that day, 
	From the manger bed what a path has led, 
	What a perfect, holy way. 

	Alleluia! O how the angels sang. 
	Alleluia! How it rang! 
	And the sky was bright with a holy light, 
	'Twas the birthday of a King.
