A king was born today
And man will live forevermore

There were tears of
joy and laughter
People shouted

And then they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark,
Mary’s little boy was born

Oh My Lord
Oh my Lord, you sent
Your Son to save us
Oh my Lord, your very self
You gave us
Oh my Lord, that sin
May not enslave us
And love may reign once more
Oh My Lord
Oh my Lord, when in the crib
They found Him
Oh my Lord, a golden halo
Crowned Him
Oh my Lord, they gathered
All around Him
To see Him and adore
Oh My Lord
(This day will live forever)
Oh my Lord (So Praise the Lord)
They had become to doubt you
Oh my Lord
(He is the truth forever)
What did they know about you?
Oh My Lord
Oh my Lord (So Praise the Lord)
But they were lost without you
They needed you so bad
(His light is shining on us)
Oh My Lord
Oh my Lord (So Praise the Lord)
With the child’s adoration
Oh my Lord (He is a personation)
There came great jubilation
Oh My Lord
Oh my Lord (So Praise the Lord)
And full of admiration
They realized what they had
(until the sun falls from the sky)
Oh My Lord
Oh my Lord (Oh praise the Lord)
You sent your Son to save us
Oh my Lord (This day will live
forever)
Your very self You gave us
Oh my Lord (So praise the Lord)
That sin may not enslave us
And love may reign once more
