You were born in Bethlehem,         as Godís gift to man.

A                Bm                      E                    A
Lord we celebrate on earth,         Your glorious virgin birth.

You we honour and adore,            now and evermore.

centres, Jesus Lord, on Thee,       not Santa Claus or me!

A            E                         F#m                  C#m
Not on decorated trees,             or fancy shopping sprees,

E                D      F#m         Bm                   E
But on Thee, the Son of God,        Jesus Christ the Lord.

For, two thousand years ago,        God to us did show.

D               A                   Bm                E
He so loved the world he gave       His Son to us save.

A                Bm                 E                    A
All those who in Christ believe,    will from Him receive,

    D             A     F#m         Bm                E
the gift of life eternally,         with Him always be.

A               E                   F#m                  C#m
How we wish the world would see,    that this special day,

D                   A               Bm                   E
centres, Jesus Lord, on Thee,       not Santa Claus or me!
