Nativity songs December 7, 2010

Filed under: Special Events — Miss Dillon @ 5:19 pm

We are busy practicing daily for the nativity play. When reading lines at home, practice reading slowly and loudly as there will be a lot of people in the church during the Carol Service! Here are the words to two of our three songs for the nativity, Three Kings.

Three kings long ago, made a journey so slow to see a baby fair.

From their camels on high, they looked at the sky, and a star was shining there.

Travelling, travelling, travelling on, Only a star to guide them along

Then in Bethlehem town, those three wise men found Lord Jesus in the hay.

And here is Little Donkey:

Little Donkey Little Donkey
On the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onward
With your precious load
Been a long time little donkey
Through the winter’s night
Don’t give up now little donkey
Bethlehem’s in sight

Ring out those bells tonight

Bethlehem Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight

Bethlehem Bethlehem

Little Donkey Little Donkey had a heavy day.
Little donkey carry Mary safely on her way. 

(repeat of 1st verse).

Angels, narrators and children without speaking lines are going to wear a large white shirt (man’s shirt) and I will have tinsel to wrap on the children’s heads. Please bring in the shirt in a bag with your childs name on it. Other costume information will be posted very soon!
