The Way to Bethlehem

Jan Pinborough's text, The Way to Bethlehem, just sort of sang itself to me. I consider the music a gift. 
Simple and appropriate for children, this lovely little song appeared in the Friend magazine in December 2015. 

Voicing: Children
Accompaniment: Piano

LYRICS

Shepherds, shepherds, leave your lambs

And find the way to Bethlehem,

For the Baby sleeping there

Is your Savior good and fair.

 

Stars and angels shine His light.

Find the way to Bethlehem tonight.

 

Wise Men, look up to the sky

For one bright star to travel by.

Bring your gold and precious things.

Kneel before the King of kings.

 

Stars and angels shine His light.

Find the way to Bethlehem tonight.

 

See how Mary holds her Son,

Jesus Christ, the Holy One.

Joseph guards with tender care.

Peace and gladness fill the air. 

 

Stars and angels shine His light.

Find the way to Bethlehem tonight.

Find your way this holy Christmas night.
