The Birthday Of a King
Ref.: 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.
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.
