Bethlehem Party

This was of the first songs I wrote for the large scale Schools Christmas project in 2012
The idea was a real disco-style number that the children would sing with ease and we could have a great dance to
On the youtube video link for this, you can see we filmed this at a friend's small holding that is set up like a Bethlehem village
As you will see, we had great fun filming it
I taught this to one school as a 'road test' for Christmas 2011, and they were confidently singing the whole song after only 15 minutes teaching time!
This is a Christmas song with disco style!


LYRICS

The day has come, the time is here
That weíve all been waiting for
The star shines bright, the angels sing
Announce the child is born
God is with us, born a baby
In a manger laid
Bring your presents, everybody
Worship him today

Come and join the party down in Bethlehem
The special day has finally arrived
Christmas celebrations down in Bethlehem
Where hope was born eternal tonight
For God has come to earth for everyone
Letís party tonight

The promised King, from heavenís throne
A gift of love for all
Is born today, for you and me
Hear the angels call
God is with us, born a baby
In a manger laid
Bring your presents, everybody
Worship him today
