Twas the Night of Jesus' Birth

By
'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the inn
Everybody was Stirring, there wasn't much room;
The innkeeper told Joseph, "The Stable is near,
And you'll find much more room than you'd ever find here;

The animals, nestled all snug on the hay,
At the sight of Mary, all scooted away.
And there in a manger the Christ Child was born.

When out in the east, where Sheperds laid,
An angel told them, "Do not be afraid."
"I bring you good news that will make everyone happy.
Today in the town of Bethlehem, a Savior is born, for you; He is Christ the Lord!
You will know him, because you will find him wrapped up in a manger."
The star in the west that the sheperds followed

Lit up the whole sky with its brilliant glow.
Then three kings and wise men followed the star;
Each bearing a gift, they traversed afar.
And one of them brought him an item of gold;
Another brought frankincense; another brought myrrh; to honor the savior's holy birth.

Now Kings! Now, Wise Men! Now Sheperds! Now Gold! And Frankincense! And Myrrh! (And the drummer boy, too.)
Into the stable! To the stable all!

Santa sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
And I wonder if Santa knows the reason for Christmas...
When I heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JESUS AND MERRY CHRISTMAS THIS NIGHT!"
