JESUS WAS GEBORE 
IN BETHLEHEM

VÍr onder in die land van Judea, o ja
Stuur God aan ons die Heiland vir al-mal

1.   Een stÍr vir die Heil-ge lig
Jesus was gebore in Bethlehem

2.  Twee trotse ouers, Josef en Maria
Een stÍr vir die Heil-ge lig
Jesus was gebore in Bethlehem

3.  Drie wyse mans van die ooste
Twee trotse ouers, Josef en Maria
Een stÍr vir die Heil-ge lig
Jesus was gebore in Bethlehem

4.  Vier herders met hul skape
Drie wyse mans van die ooste
Twee trotse ouers, Josef en Maria
Een stÍr vir die Heil-ge lig
Jesus was gebore in Bethlehem

5.  Duisende engele wat sing "Ere aan God"
Vier herders met hul skape

Drie wyse mans van die ooste
Twee trotse ouers, Josef en Maria
Een stÍr vir die Heil-ge lig
Jesus was gebore in Bethlehem


 

Jesus Was Born In Bethlehem
(a Christmas carol written in the musical style of 
"The Twelve Days Of Christmas")

 

Way down in the land of Judea, oh yeah!
God sent to the earth a Savior, for all men
 

1.  One star for the Holy Light
Jesus was born in Bethlehem

2. Two proud parents, Joseph and Mary
One star for the Holy Light
Jesus was born in Bethlehem

3. Three wisemen from the east
Two proud parents, Joseph and Mary

One star for the Holy Light
Jesus was born in Bethlehem

4. Four shepherds with their sheep
Three wisemen from the east
Two proud parents, Joseph and Mary

One star for the Holy Light
Jesus was born in Bethlehem

5. Thousands of angels singing "Glory to God"
Four shepherds with their sheep
Three wisemen from the east
Two proud parents, Joseph and Mary

One star for the Holy Light
Jesus was born in Bethlehem
