Lyrics

MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB (DEATON, NORRIS)

WEARY TRAVELERS PACE OF A MULE
YOUNG VIRGIN WITH CHILD A PROPHECY DUE
ON THE WORD OF THE ANGELS GUIDED BY FAITH
POOR HUNGRY WANDERERS, SURVIVING ON GRACE

ENDURING EACH STEP, INSUFFRABLE STRIDE
ENTERING THE TOWN WITH NO SENSE OF PRIDE
DOOR AFTER DOOR THEY TURNED THEM AWAY
TO A COLD LOWLY BARN THEY WERE HUMBLED TO STAY

ONLY GOD'S CREATURES MADE ROOM ON THAT DAY
TO WITNESS OUR LORD BEING BORN IN THE HAY THEY WERE
TAKEN FOR BEGGARS, TREATED AS STRAYS
NEVER A THOUGHT OF THE PRICE HE WOULD PAY
FOR ON THAT NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM
MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB

WHO CARED TO NOTICE THE STAR UP ABOVE
SAVE FOR THE MAGI SEEKING THE ONE
SWADDLED IN RAGS, THEIR KING THEY HAD FOUND
A CRIB FOR A THRONE, A HALO HIS CROWN

ONLY GOD'S CREATURES MADE ROOM ON THAT DAY
TO WITNESS OUR LORD BEING BORN IN THE HAY
TAKEN FOR BEGGARS, TREATED AS STRAYS
NEVER A THOUGHT OF THE PRICE HE WOULD PAY
FOR ON THAT NIGHT IN BETHLEHEM
MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB
