“And Joseph also went up from
Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judæa, unto the city
of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child. And so it was, that, while
they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought
forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger;
because there was no room for them in the inn.”
- Luke 2: 4 - 7
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Okay, I think this time I have found a really obscure Christmas carol. I never heard of it. My cousin Jean Atkinson Mallory (Rappahannock HS / John Marshall HS - '65) of VA never heard of it. Apparently YouTube and Wikipedia never heard of it either, because I cannot find either a video or a history of it. Nevertheless, here it is (the lyrics are printed at the bottom, as always). I didn't want to leave you "bonus-less" though, so I found you a rather cool video to watch.
