Twas The Night

Twas The Night

It was the time of taxation; through out, all the land

By decree from Augustus, upon every man

So Joseph and Mary went up from Galilee

To the City of David; to pay Caesar’s fees

And so it was; that while, they were there

Mary’s time was accomplished; her baby to bear

But throughout the city; throughout all of Bethlehem

For Mary and Joseph; no room could be found

But that of a stable; where the animals were fed

A babe in swaddling clothes; the manger his bed

And shepherds were abiding; in that country, in the fields

Watching over their flocks; as the night was still

When an angel of the Lord; appeared with the good news

Fear not for this night; a Savior is born unto you

In the City of David; in a manger, in Bethlehem

Wrapped in swaddling clothes, the babe will be found

And a multitude of heavenly hosts, appeared just then

Saying glory to God in the highest; peace on earth, goodwill toward men

And the shepherds turned aside; when the angels were gone

To the City of David; to what the Lord, had made known

All were exactly, as the angel had told

From Bethlehem, to the manger, to the swaddling clothes

For all they had heard and for all they had seen

The shepherds returned, praising God for all things
