Off To Bethlehem

Verse 1
We’re off to Bethlehem on a little donkey,
Bethlehem so far away.
We’re off to Bethlehem we go there for a census,
Everyone will travel to their
Place of birth and then be counted.

Verse 2
We’re off to Bethlehem on a little donkey,
Bethlehem so far away.
We’re off to Bethlehem across the sandy desert,
Everyone will need some shelter,
Let’s hope we can find somewhere to stay.

Verse 3
Angels watching from above
Pray keep us safe from harm,
Guide us both and help us on our way.

Verse 4
We’re off to Bethlehem on a little donkey,
Bethlehem so far away.
We’re off to Bethlehem to have a special baby,
Everyone rejoice that He is
Sent from God to Earth for all Mankind.

Everyone rejoice that He is
Sent from God to Earth for all Mankind.
