The star of Bethlehem


The star of Bethlehem

T'was in Bethlehem that Jesus was born
Raised in Jerusalem a million hearts he won

Preached Love, kindness and compassion
Traits that were missing then

Challenged the mighty Romans
Beliefs of his brethren

A sleight of hand and he could heal
A leper, sick child - even a corpse

Way ahead of his time
He was spat on, despised and cursed

A tear for you Oh, Sweet Jesus
A man that never was

Taking on the sins of others
Smiling as he passed

Every step of the way
They beat him black and blue

Golgotha will never see
A being like you

Called to the heavens
You had to move on

Jesus, Your star still shines
Long after you were gone
