31 Days of Christmas Lyrics, Day 31 (Once Upon a Christmas)

The King was born at last…

We made it – all the way to 31. Time to let this blog go dark for a couple years, since that seems to be my normal practice.(Kidding. Really. Totally. Sort of. Maybe…)  Actually, I’m hoping that this daily reminder to write, even if it’s only a sentence or two, will help me build some new patterns and routines. Time will tell.

To wrap these fun and games up, a song that takes us through the whole story. I hope you’ve enjoyed this lyric parade, but more importantly, I hope your Advent and Christmas have been a blessed one indeed. May He rule and reign in our hearts, may His love wrap all of us in His mercy, and even so, quickly come Lord Jesus. Amen.

“And all the world rejoiced because the King had come at last!”

Once upon a Christmas far away in Bethlehem
Mary being great with child had no place to lie down
So Joseph found a stable in which Mary had her child
Once upon a Christmas was the birth of Jesus Christ

Once upon a Christmas in a manger far away
A King was born His palace was a manger filled with hay
His royal robe was swaddling cloth a halo was His crown
Once upon a Christmas away in Bethlehem

And all the world rejoiced because the King was born at last
A savior had been promised now it had come to pass
And the joyful news that He was born spread quickly far and wide
Once upon a Christmas was the birth of Jesus Christ

Once upon a Christmas from the Far East wise men came
With gold and myrrh and frankincense to praise the newborn King
And shepherds left their flocks and came to see and worship Him
Once upon a Christmas away in Bethlehem

And all the world rejoiced because the King was born at last
A savior had been promised now it had come to pass
And the joyful news that He was born spread quickly far and wide
Once upon a Christmas was the birth of Jesus Christ

Once upon a Christmas far away in Bethlehem
– Dolly Parton
