If I Had Been In Bethlehem
If I had been in Bethlehem, the night of Jesus’ birth, And heard afar the angels’ joyful song, of peace on earth, If I had seen the shepherds come, to seek the baby fair, I think I would have followed them, and
knelt beside them there. If I had lived in eastern lands, and watched with eager eyes, If I had seen his star appear, and blaze among the skies, If I had seen the wise men go, to seek the newborn King, I think
I would have followed them, my finest gifts to bring. I did not live in Bethlehem, that Christmas night of old, Or travel with the wise men there, to bring him gifts of gold, But I can give a greater gift, than any
earthly gem, For all my heart and all my love, will be my gift to him.
