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


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

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


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


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
