"HAPPILY SINGING"

Verse 1
On the roadway to the city
Rides Mary on a donkey.
Trav’ling with her and dear Joseph
Is God’s Spirit so almighty.

Chorus 1
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd mother,
Comes to Bethlehem this glad evening.
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd Virgin,
Comes to Bethlehem on this eve.

Verse 2
In the evening, on arriving,
In the noisy, crowded city,
There is no place to find lodging
For Mary, weak and weary.

Chorus 2
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd mother,
Comes to Bethlehem this glad evening.
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd Virgin,
Comes to Bethlehem on this eve.

Verse 3
From the forest, birds come winging,
To the city they come streaming,
Sweetest music they are trilling,
Mother Mary they are cheering.

Chorus 3
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd mother,
Comes to Bethlehem this glad evening.
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd Virgin,
Comes to Bethlehem on this eve.

Verse 4
In a stable they are able
To find shelter on this evening.
Baby Jesus, He is born there,
’Neath the star so brightly beaming.

Chorus 4
We are happily, happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd mother,
Comes to Bethlehem this glad evening.
We are happily singing,
Letting melody joyfully ring,
For Mary, blesséd Virgin,
Comes to Bethlehem on this eve.
