  • This is perry como . . .
  • And i'd like to tell you the most wonderful, the most beautiful,
  • The most exciting story in the whole world,
  • The story of the first christmas!
  • Now suppose you make believe this is many, many years ago,
  • A long time before you were born!
  • You're standing on a hillside, near a little town in palestine,
  • Do you see the man in the distance, walking slowly, leading a donkey?
  • His name is joseph!
  • Someone is sitting on the back of the donkey,
  • And her name is mary!
  • They've come a long, long way,
  • And they're heading for a little town near the hillside,
  • On which we're standing!
  • Something very special will happen in this little town tonight!
  • For this is the little town of bethlehem!
  • Oh little town of bethlehem,
  • How still we see thee lie,
  • Above thy deep and dreamless sleep,
  • The silent stars go by!
  • Yet in thy dark streets shineth,
  • The everlasting light!
  • The hopes and fears of all the years,
  • Are met in thee tonight!
  • Let's follow joseph and mary into the town of bethlehem,
  • It's getting dark and all of the rooms at the inn are taken,
  • But the kindly innkeeper tells them
  • They could spend the night at a stable nearby!
  • Now i told you something was gonna happen, and it did!
  • A baby boy is born to mary and joseph,
  • Whom they call jesus!
  • They have no baby's crib, so mary puts little jesus to sleep,
  • In the soft sweet hay of a manger!
  • Come, come, come to the manger,
  • Children sing and asleep on the hay,
  • Sing, sing, chorus of angels,
  • Little lord jesus is born on this day!
  • Jesus is asleep in the manger,
  • So let's tiptoe out to the hillside near bethlehem,
  • Where the shepherds are tending their flock.
  • All at once the shepherds are frightened,
  • You'd be frightened too,
  • Because a great light suddenly shines in the sky!
  • Even the animals are hushed and still,
  • But then you hear the voice of an angel of the lord!
  • And you're no longer frightened,
  • For the angel brings good news,
  • News of a saviour born this day,
  • News of christ the lord!
  • The first noel! the angels did say,
  • Was to certain poor shepherds,
  • In fields as they lay, in fields where they,
  • Lay keeping their sheep,
  • On a cold winter's night, that was so deep!
  • Noel, noel, noel, noel!
  • Born is the king of israel!
  • Well, we're still with the shepherds,
  • On the hillside near bethlehem.
  • We hear the shepherds ask the angel,
  • Where to find the christ-child?
  • And the angel tells them to go to the manger.
  • And as they leave the sky is filled with other angels singing,
  • Glory to god! and on earth peace, goodwill, to men!
  • The shepherds hurry to the manger,
  • Fall on their knees before the baby,
  • And they worship him!
  • For he is christ the lord!
  • Oh! come all ye faithful,
  • Joyful and triumphant!
  • Oh come ye, oh come ye, to bethlehem!
  • Come and behold him,
  • Born the king of angels,
  • Oh! come let us adore him,
  • Oh! come let us adore him,
  • Oh! come let us adore him,
  • Christ the lord!
  • And now, look up into the sky!
  • Do you see that bright star twinkling in the heavens?
  • Far away, three men are looking at that star just as we are!
  • They're riding on camels,
  • And they're using the star as a guide to lead them to the christ-child.
  • Who are these three men who follow the star?
  • We three kings of orient are,
  • Bearing gifts, we traverse afar,
  • Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
  • Following yonder star!
  • Yes, the three men on the camels are the three wise men,
  • The new star guides them straight to bethlehem,
  • To a little baby lying in a manger!
  • There the three wise men present gifts to the christ-child,
  • The first christmas gifts ever given to anyone,
  • A gift of gold, of frankincense, and of mir!
  • And they too fall on their knees to worship him,
  • And now, a great peace settles on the night,
  • For it is the holy night!
  • Silent night, holy night,
  • All is calm, all is bright,
  • ¡®round yon virgin mother and child,
  • Holy infant so tender and mild!
  • Sleep in heavenly peace,
  • Sleep in heavenly peace!
  • This is why when we celebrate christmas,
  • We think of bethlehem,
  • We think of the virgin mary,
  • We think of the three wise men,
  • And the birth of the christ-child!
  • The first christmas!
  • Oh! come let us adore him,
  • Christ the lord!
