Holy Child of Bethlehem

Christmas book

Wise men gather there.
Shepherd’s travel by night.
A light directs their way.
Holy Lamb lays in a manger.

The hay is a crib for His bed.
Gold – frankincense – Mirth.
A Holy child is born today.
In the town of Bethlehem.
A Savior. A King to see.

He directs us homeward.
All peoples return to Jesus!

Mary – Joseph cry and sing.
“Glory to God in the highest.”
His holy blood to save us all.
You can follow Him too, now.
Open your hands to receive.

He directs us homeward.
All peoples return to Jesus!

Holy Child – song

Oh, holy child of Bethlehem.
O – o- o-o o-h.
Came to earth is heaven sent.
O – o- o-o oh.
Holy child Lamb of God.
Holy child Lamb of God.
Holy child Lamb of God.
O – o- o-o o-h.

Returned to earth to set us free.
O – o- o-o o-h.
(pause) Born for you and me.
(pause) Born for you and me.

Take His hand. Ask Him in.
Take His hand. Ask Him in.
His dove to dwell within.

Holy child Lamb of God.
Holy child Lamb of God.
Holy child Lamb of God.
O – o- o-o o-h.

He came once to set us free.
To set the captive free.
Born for you and me.
Born for you and me.

Oh, holy Lamb – Lord of all.
Thank you for your love and care.
Us to receive you now.
So we can dwell with you.
So we can dwell with you.
