"Mary's Boy Child" is a Christmas song written by Jester Hairston.

Lyrics[]

Long time ago in Bethlehem,
So the holy Bible say
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

[Chorus]
Hark now hear the angels sing:
New king's born today,
And man will love forever more,
Because of Christmas Day

While shepherds watched their flock by night,
They saw a bright new shining star,
And heard a choir from Heaven sing.
The music seems to come from afar

[Chorus]

Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night,
They found no place to bear her child.
Not a single room was in sight

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]
