THE FIRST CHRISTMAS
Lyrics: Ned Washington - Music: Dimitri Tiomkin
There was a Christmas long, long ago
When in His goodness God, loving us so
Gave us the Christ child, infant and King
In whose glorious name joyfully we sing.
There in that manger life's mystery unfurled -
There came out of the darkness
The light that lights the world.
Hail to the Savior Christ that we know,
Born on that first Christmas long, long ago.
