lyrics

When He is king, We will give him the king’s gifts
Myrrh for its sweetness and gold for a crown
Beautiful robes, said the young girl to Joseph
Fair with her firstborn on Bethlehem Down

Bethlehem Down is full of the star light
Winds for the spices, and stars for the gold
Mary for sleep, and for lullaby music
Songs of a shepherd by Bethlehem fold

When He is king they will clothe Him in graves sheets
Myrrh for embalming, and wood for a crown
He that lies now in the soft arms of Mary
Sleeping so lightly on Bethlehem Down

Here He has peace and a short while for dreaming
Close huddled oxen to keep him from cold
Mary for love, and for lullaby music
Songs of a shepherd by Bethlehem fold
