Merry Christmas Mary (Overstreet Paul)

Joseph was tired They'd been traveling all day And it was almost midnight Before he found a place to stay He put the burro in the stall Then knelt beside his wife To comfort her As she went through The pain of giving life And up above a star was shining brightly in the sky Joseph held the baby child And showed him to his wife And he said, "Merry Christmas, Mary Let me be the first to say, Merry Christmas, Mary The son of God has come to us today" There was someone at the door And Joseph turned to see Some plain and simple shepherd men Down on bended knee They talked about an angel Who told them where to come In the middle of the night to see God's only son Then later there came wisemen Bearing gifts and offerings And Joseph led them all to see And praise the new born king And they said, "Merry Christmas, Mary Let us be the first to say, Merry Christmas, Mary The son of God has come to us today" Tears of joy Were gently flowing Out of Joseph's eyes While up above the angels sang "Glory to God!" Merry Christmas, Mary Let us be the first to say, Merry Christmas, Mary The son of God has come to us today The son of God has come to us today
