A Star is Shining in Bethlehem

Tune: Mulberry Bush

1. A star is shining in Bethlehem,
Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
a star is shining in Bethlehem
on a tiny child in a manger.

2. Mary and Joseph are loving him,
loving him, loving him,
Mary and Joseph are loving him,
the tiny child in the manger.

3. The sheep and cattle will keep him warm,
him warm, keep him warm,
the sheep and cattle will keep him warm,
the tiny child in the manger.

4. The angels sing of peace on earth,
peace on earth, peace on earth,
the angels sing of peace on earth
because of the child in the manger.

5. The shepherds leap and dance with joy,
dance with joy, dance with joy,
the shepherds leap and dance with joy
for the tiny child in the manger.

6. What are the gifts the wise men bring,
wise men bring, wise men bring,
what are the gifts the wise men bring
to the tiny child in the manger?

7. Gold and myrrh and frankincense,
frankincense, frankincense,
gold and myrrh and frankincense
for the tiny child in the manger.

8. Join with us as we welcome him,
welcome him, welcome him,
join with us as we welcome him,
the tiny child in the manger

9. Alleluia, praise to him,
praise to him, praise to him,
alleluia, praise to him,
the tiny child in the manger.
