  1. Bethlehem Down

From the recording The Ghosts of Christmas Past

Lyrics

When He is king, We will give him the king’s gifts Myrrh for its sweetness and gold for a crown Beautiful robes, said the young girl to Joseph Fair with her firstborn on Bethlehem Down Bethlehem Down is full of the star light Winds for the spices, and stars for the gold Mary for sleep, and for lullaby music Songs of a shepherd by Bethlehem fold When He is king they will clothe Him in graves sheets Myrrh for embalming, and wood for a crown He that lies now in the soft arms of Mary Sleeping so lightly on Bethlehem Down Here He has peace and a short while for dreaming Close huddled oxen to keep him from cold Mary for love, and for lullaby music Songs of a shepherd by Bethlehem fold
