Sunday's Hymn: The Birthday of a King

In the little village of Bethlehem,
There lay a Child one day;
And the sky was bright with a holy light
O’er the place where Jesus lay.

Refrain

Alleluia! O how the angels sang.
Alleluia! How it rang!
And the sky was bright with a holy light
’Twas the birthday of a King.

’Twas a humble birthplace, but O how much
God gave to us that day,
From the manger bed what a path has led,
What a perfect, holy way.

—Will­iam H. Neid­ling­er

Recorded by Trinity Choir in 1923.

That is such a great version of that song! Pretty good sound quality for that old, too!
