In Bethlehem Lyrics
A child is born in Bethlehem
On Christmas Day at 6am
No guiding star to show the way
No wise men come to kneel and pray

No angel heralds a new king
No shepherds come their gifts to bring
The family’s poor and in need
Now there’s another mouth to feed

In Bethlehem, in Bethlehem
In Bethlehem on Christmas morning

The bells ring out in Manger Square
They’re calling you to Christmas prayer
You need a pass to enter through
The barricades where people queue

The atmosphere is charged and tense
The town’s surrounded by a fence
A curfew falls down after dark
Long wars not peace have left their mark

In Bethlehem, in Bethlehem
In Bethlehem on Christmas morning

Whilst gathering ’round the Christmas tree
Please raise your glass and drink with me
(To) the child that’s born in Bethlehem
On Christmas Day at 6am

Your children wait for Santa Claus
You celebrate without remorse
So raise your glass and toast again
To everyone in Bethlehem

In Bethlehem, in Bethlehem
In Bethlehem on Christmas morning
In Bethlehem, in Bethlehem
In Bethlehem on Christmas morning

Paul Robert Thomas
