1. Long ago and far away,
Heaven rang with joy today,
Jesus in the manger lay,
In Bethlehem, Upon a Christmas morning.

He came among us at Christmas-tide,
At Christmas-tide, in Bethlehem;
Men shall bring him from far and wide Love’s diadem:
Jesus, Jesus,
Lo, he comes, and loves, and saves, and frees us.

2. Shepherds heard and wondered why,
Angels sang up in the sky
‘Glory be to God most high,’
In Bethlehem, Upon a Christmas morning. Chorus

3. Said the angel, ‘For a sign,
Ye shall find the Babe divine
Cradled with the lowing kine,
In Bethlehem, Upon a Christmas morning. Chorus
