To Bethlehem at Caesar’s behest

Mary journeyed in need of rest

And though no space at the inn was found

She was forced to give birth in a stable’s ground

Her babe small and innocent that day

Was placed in a manger’s hay

Her journey though was far from complete

For soon to Egypt she would be forced to retreat

Such a rough beginning – a tale so sad

Is in reality one of joy to make us glad

For it set the stage of things to come

Our salvation though the birth of that Holy One
