DescriptionModern day Christmas carol about a boy arriving at the stable on the night of Jesus' birth. Slow and sweet with beautiful soaring melody.
LyricsI heard the bells on Christmas Day
Near the manger where the new babe lay
And my heart near broke with the weight of joy
And the sound of bells for a baby boy
I saw the star in the eastern sky
And it shone so brightly, I wondered why
Then the wise men came with their gifts so rare
For the poor wee babe so soft and fair
Then I felt a stirring inside of me
And I ventured closer so I could see
When at last I came to his wooden bed
I knelt and stroked his wondrous head
Before I knew what was happening
My lips did move and I did sing
A lullaby for the little lad
Twas the only gift that 'ere I had
Was he my saviour? Was he my Lord?
Did he heal the sick and ban the sword?
And did he die for the likes of me
To save my soul and set me free?
