AARON NEVILLE lyrics - Mary's Boy Child

AARON NEVILLE
"Mary's Boy Child"

Long time ago
In Bethlehem
So the
Holy Bible say
Mary's boy child
Jesus Christ
Was born
On Christmas day

Hark
Now hear
The angels sing
A King
Was born today
And man will live
For evermore
Because
Of Christmas Day

While shepherds
Watch
Their flocks
By night
They see
A bright new
Shining star
They hear a choir
Sing a song
The music seemed
To come from afar

Now Joseph
And his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem
That night
They found no place
To bear her child
Not a single room
Was in sight

Hark
Now hear
The angels sing
A King
Was born today
And man will live
For evermore
Because
Of Christmas day
Mary's boy child
Jesus Christ
Was born
On Christmas day

And then
They found
A little nook
In a stable
All forlorn
And in a manger
Cold and dark
Mary's little boy
Was born

Hark
Now hear
The angels sing
A King
Was born today
And man will live
For evermore
Because
Of Christmas day
Mary's boy child
Jesus Christ
Was born
On Christmas Day
