1. A Child is Born in Bethlehem,
in Bethlehem;
And joy is in Jerusalem,
Allelujah! Allelujah!

2. A lowly maiden all alone,
So all alone,
Gave birth to God's own Holy Son.
Allelujah! Allelujah!

3. She chose a manger for His bed,
For Jesus' bed.
God's angels sang for joy o'erhead,
Allelujah! Allelujah!

4. Give thanks and praise eternally,
Eternally,
To God, the Holy Trinity.
Allelujah! Allelujah!
