Christ was Born in Bethlehem — Don Fortner
(Tune: #145 — Hail, Thou Once Despised Jesus — 87.87.D)
HeavÕnly hosts proclaimed His coming; and a Virgin gave Him birth!
See Jehovah in our nature, — Jesus Christ, God come to save!
Angels sang it, angels sang it: — Christ was born in Bethlehem!
To redeem us Christ was willing, to perform the work decreed.
God the Father, Son and Spirit, all in covÕnant love agreed.
Blessed Surety! Blessed Surety! Christ was born in Bethlehem!
That on Christ, the LordÕs Anointed, our offences must be laid
That the Lamb, spotless and holy, must for sinners sin be made!
That He might thus make atonement, Christ was born in Bethlehem!
SatanÕs vanquished, though he rages, crushed by ZionÕs mighty King;
Saints shall, throÕ eternal ages, this triumphant anthem sing:
ŌHallelujah! Hallelujah! — Christ was born in Bethlehem!Ķ
