THE STORY OF CHRISTMAS
Words and music by Alan Brian Curtis
Some lyric adaptations from Luke 2:8-17; Isa 9:6

Verse
In the orient nations among vocations
The hireling shepherd is the lowest of low
But with infinite wisdom
God worked outside of the system
And he chose the shepherd as the first one to know

Chorus
The story of Christmas
Fills the restless heart with awesome wonder
No longer forlorn, the shepherd is his witness
Conventionality is torn asunder
The Savior is born, O blessed Christmas
Born to us this day the servant king

Verse
Year one AD now had started so the shepherds departed
For the city of David that is called Bethlehem
Having gazed on the picture, foreshadowed in the scripture
They publicized widely what was made known to them

Chorus
The story of Christmas
Fills the restless heart with awesome wonder
No longer forlorn, the shepherd is his witness
Conventionality is torn asunder
The Savior is born, O blessed Christmas
Born to us this day the servant king

Vamp
For unto us a son has been given
And his name shall be called
Wonderful
For unto us a child has been born
And his name
Counselor
And his name shall be called
Dr. Jesus
Mighty God, he is a great physician
Everlasting Father
He is the prince of peace
And we will call his name Wonderful
He’s the mighty counselor
Everybody sings the praises of the mighty God
He is a mighty, mighty, mighty, mighty, mighty God
Everlasting Father
Prince of Peace
He is a wonderful counselor
And ain’t it wonderful that his services are free
He don’t need no PHD
You might be smoking crack or taking LSD
But he provides worldwide free delivery
Everlasting father
Everybody Merry Christmas Happy New Year!
I love you
