Lyrics:
1.  In Bethlehem a Babe was born
    With love enough for all.
    While kingdoms slept, the Lord came down
    To grace a manger stall.
    And with a glorious light
    Angels appeared that night, 
    Singing, "Come, come, Christ is born!
    Come, come, world forlorn.
    The Child of peace and sacrifice is waiting to be found."

2.  Royalty and shepherds came
    To worship from afar,
    Guided through the long cold night
    By one persistent star.
    As each beheld the Son,
    Strangers became as one,
    Singing, "Come, come, Christ is born!
    Come, come, world forlorn.
    The Child of peace and sacrifice is waiting to be found."

3.  The mystery of Bethlehem
    Was long ago, they say,
    But, miracle of miracles,
    The Baby lives today
    In each new heart that hears
    Love coming through the years,
    Singing, "Come, come, Christ is born!
    Come, come, world forlorn.
    The Child of peace and sacrifice is waiting to be found."
