1.Oh long ago and far away I heard the angels sing.
They told the glorious story of the coming of our King.
The Christ child born that holy night In Mary’s arms did lay,
While shepherds gathered ’round in awe, Joseph knelt to pray.


        Oh praise to Him, to His great name, their voices sweet did ring!
Oh praises be to His great name; our Savior, Lord and King!

2.The wise traveled from afar to see this Child of Love,
And guiding them the wondrous star filled the sky above.
His life was our example, He came to show the way,

For us to have eternal life, He gave His life in pay.


3.The purpose of His death and birth all mankind must know.
He came and died that we might live, a perfect love to show.
Oh may I live my life in thanks, In mem’ry of His love,
That someday I may live with Him in holy courts above.
