Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers - Once upon a Christmas
Tekst en muziek: Dolly Rebecca Parton
(1984)






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
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 and the birth of Jesus Christ



Hosanna, Hosanna, Hosanna



All the world rejoiced, because the King had come 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
