JB3 Lyr Req: Christ Was Born in Bethlehem (14) Lyr Add: DOWN CAME AN ANGEL (Ritchie family) 16 Sep 98


Are you referring to the song from the Ritchie family in Kentucky? They call it "Down Came an Angel"

Christ was born in Bethlehem
Christ was born in Bethlehem
Christ was born in Bethlehem
And in a manger lay
And in a manger lay, and in a manger lay
Christ was born in Bethlehem
And in a manger lay

Judas, he betrayed him
They nailed him to the tree

Joseph begged his body
And laid it in the tomb

The tomb it would not hold him
He burst the bands of death

Down came an angel
And rolled the stone away

Mary she came weeping
Her precious Lord to see

What's the matter, Mary?
They stole my Lord away

Go and tell your bretheren
He's risen from the dead
