♪♪♪SONG ONE: CAESAR AUGUSTUS♪♪♪

Who was this man
Caesar Augustus?
He was the main man in Palestine He came to stay with the Romans They had a real good time

Most of their days was spent in finding Pleasurable pursuits ... but Nothing gave Caesar greater pleasure
Than counting up all of his loot

Other men could do their stuff With the poor and the needy But charity won’t pay for thrills

And Caesar got his kicks from being greedy

Caesar was mean he was moody So he created a brand new plan Sent all his men, his top advisors Over the Holy Land
If he increased the peasant’s taxes They would have to pay ... and Money’s the thing to cheer a man up And chase all those blues right away

CAESAR

‘Send ‘em back, send ‘em home To the place where they started Tell them money’s all I want They are lucky I am so big hearted’

He didn’t care about the protest He was immune to all their scorn His order stood and they returned to

That place where they were born Chaos was caused with all the people Rushing to and fro’ but
Caesar Augustus had a field day Counting up all of his dough

 

♪♪♪SONG TWO: BETHLEHEM IN JUDAH♪♪♪

Bethlehem in Judah is the place where it’s at There are a hundred thousand people here to be taxed When the day’s over and your work is done

Come down to the market place we’ll have some fun And we’ll dance to the music’s crazy beat ... dance Let the rhythm lift your feet .... dance

Till you feel your spirit is soaring Fly let the music take you high .... up Till you almost touch the sky ... I’ll Show you what it means to be free

When you’re dancing with me. Bethlehem in Judah is the best place to be Because we’re waiting for a birth to make history

Feel the vibrations - excitement’s around Watch the celebrations spread all over town As we dance to the music’s crazy beat .. dance Let the rhythm lift your feet ... dance
Till you feel your spirit is soaring
Fly let the music take you high .... up
Till you almost touch the sky ... I’ll
Show you what it means to be free

When you’re dancing with me

 

♪♪♪SONG THREE: NO PLACE TO STAY♪♪♪

No place to stay
Everyone turned them both away
No shelter for the night
No safe place from the cold wind’s bite
Till the break of day

Tired and alone
They travelled many miles from their home But there in a tiny cattle shed

Where donkeys and oxen slept and fed Mary’s baby boy was born

[Instrumental verse]

No one on earth
Waited to greet this holy child’s birth But there on a cold, damp stable floor

Lay hope for the weak, the meek, the poor When Mary’s baby boy was born

 

♪♪♪SONG FOUR: SHEPHERD BOY♪♪♪

This was a night when a million stars Were ablaze in the sky
Shining their bright light on the world From heaven on high
This was a night when a shepherd boy

Raised his eyes to the sky Quivering and shaking with fright Asked ‘What could this be?

Does the light shine for me?’

And all around the shepherds fell upon the ground And listened to the glorious sound
An angel’s voice rang in the night

Heard him sing
‘Good tidings of great joy I bring Amongst you is an infant king
So run to him let your feet take flight

In Bethlehem we have come to tell God sends his son on the earth to dwell A saviour king you will call Emmanuel’

Gloria:

Sing glory to God in the highest and peace to all men Sing glory hosanna
Hosanna again and again
God is made human and lives on the Earth with men Sing glory hosanna
Hosanna again and again
God is made human and lives on the earth with men

 

♪♪♪SONG FIVE: THREE KINGS ♪♪♪

Three kings with frankincense With myrrh and with gold Travelled through heat of day And nights raw and cold
But these men were wise you see Did math’matics and astronomy

Knew that if they’d got it right A new king
Would be born that night

A star would lead them to him with a shining light

These were important men So good and so brave They knew the proper way To talk and behave

But this left them mystified They could not believe their eyes Could it be they’d come this far

By the light Of a shining star

To find a tiny stable with the door ajar?

Inside this humble room

Where no man had lived There shone a radiant light From the child in his crib

Then they knew by God’s good grace They had found this very holy place And with shepherds joined to sing Songs of praise

To the new born king

And joyfully they gave to him their offering.

 

♪♪♪SONG SIX: A PLACE TO STAY♪♪♪

Christmas time
Familiar themes from that first Christmas day Three wise men
A star in the east that led them on their way

Love is a star
Like a star it can burn so bright Lightening up the darkest night

So open your heart
And find it a place to stay.
In that stable long ago asleep amongst the hay

God’s own son came down upon earth To help us live today
Love was a child

Just a baby boy
Like a child love can bring hope and joy to share So open your heart And find it a place to stay.

Sing the message loud and clear It survived for all to hear Through the many passing years Since that first Christmas.

Love is the power to change the world where we all must live A power within for all to give
So open your heart

And find it a place to stay Find it a place to stay.
