The night before that happy tide
The noble Virgin and her guide
Were long time seeking up and down
To find a lodging in the town.
But mark how all things came to pass
From every door repelled, alas!
As long foretold, their refuge all
Was but an humble ox’s stall.

Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep
To whom God’s angels did appear
Which put the shepherd’s in great fear.
“Prepare and go,” the angels said
“To Bethlehem, be not afraid
For there you’ll find this happy morn
A princely babe, sweet Jesus born.”

With thankful heart and joyful mind
The shepherds went the babe to find
And as God’s angel had foretold
They did our Saviour Christ behold.
Within a manger he was laid
And by his side the virgin maid
Attending on the Lord of Life
Who came to earth to end all strife.

There were three wise men from afar
Directed by a glorious star
And on they wandered night and day
Until they came where Jesus lay.
And when they came unto that place
Where our beloved Messiah was
They humbly cast them at his feet
With gifts of gold and incense sweet.

Good [D]people all, this Christ[Am]mas [G(Bm7)]time
Con[C]sider [G]well and [F]bear in mind
[D]What [G]our good God for us [Am]has [G(Bm7)]done
In [C]sending [G]his [D]be[G]loved Son.
With [Dm]Mary ho[Am]ly we [Bb]should pray
To [Gm]God with love this [F]Christmas day
In [G]Bethlehem upon [Am]that [G(Bm7)]morn
There [C]was a [G]blessed [D]Mes[G]siah born.
