Stan Davis: Music

Born on Christmas Day

(Stan Davis & Friends - lead vocal: Noelle Antonsen)
music & lyrics by Stan Davis
This was written one Christmas Day after a morning performing in the Empress Hotel, as part of a small a cappella ensemble. At one particular moment during our singing, an overwhelming inspiration took hold of me - giving me an incredible awareness and appreciation of why we celebrate Christmas. This song is my attempt to express that moment.
In a stable long ago, a baby lay
Sleeping peacefully upon His bed of hay
Three wise men saw a bright star
To help show them the way
To the baby Jesus born on Christmas Day

Every year, we celebrate His holy birth
And we wish good will to all and peace on earth
The greatest gift of all is the love that we convey
For the baby Jesus born on Christmas Day

As we rejoice when Christ was born
Let every heart implore
For peace and love for everyone
Forevermore, forevermore

In a stable long ago, a baby lay
Sleeping peacefully upon His bed of hay
Three wise men saw a bright star
To help show them the way
To the baby Jesus born on Christmas Day
To the baby Jesus born on Christmas Day
