The Nativity

Baby Jesus was born far away from home
In the stable of a stranger
He slept in the box that the animals ate from
A box that’s called a manger
We call that box a manger

An angel flew to some nearby shepherds
With a message he was sent
To announce the arrival of the son of the Lord
That what we call the Advent
His arrival’s called the Advent

The shepherds were happy as they could be
They were filled with elation
They went to the stable to praise the child
That’s called the adoration
It’s called the adoration

Christians believe that on that day
God’s word was made flesh
Some build models of that holy scene
That model’s called a crèche
A nativity or a crèche
