The Birthday of a King

1. In the little village of Bethlehem,
There lay Child one day,
And the sky was bright with a holy light,
O'er the place where Jesus lay.
Alleluia! Oh, how the angels sang,
Alleluia! How it rang!
And the sky was bright with a holy light.
'Twas the birthday of a King.

2. 'Twas a humble birthplace; but oh! how much
God gave to us that day!
From the manger bed, what a path has led!
What a perfect, holy way!
Alleluia! Oh, how the angels sang,
Alleluia! How it rang!
And the sky was bright with a holy light.
'Twas the birthday of a King.
