We remember each year on Christmas day
Little baby Jesus lying in the hay.
In a wooden manger near the cows and sheep
Lay the son of God, peacefully asleep.
Shepherds watching their sheep that night
Suddenly saw a very bright light.
Angels said not to be afraid
But go see where baby Jesus was laid.
Everybody was filled with joy
Because of this tiny baby boy
Who is the greatest gift of all,
Although he was so very small.
Because of God's love Jesus came,
And he still loves us just the same.
At Christmas time and each day too
Remember that Jesus always loves you!
