    Then Gabriel came and said to Joseph alone
    "Do not be afraid to make Mary your own
    But go to your betrothed and then be married
    The child is Heaven sent"

    And it came to pass
    That there went out a decree
    From Caesar Augustus
    That all the world would be taxed

    And each went to be taxed to his own city
    So Joseph also went
    With his lady innocent
    With his lady innocent

    The lions in the mountains
    Let them pass and followed
    Close by night to guard them

    From Galilee to Bethlehem
    She journeyed with only a donkey to ride
    With Joseph walking beside
    Came to David's city

    While she was great with child
    Through a country dark and wild
    Through a country dark and wild

    And on the far horizon
    Rose a strange and brilliant
    Star as though to guide them
