Let’s Live Nativity

From the ‘Sing Young, Sing Joyfully’ collection

1. Let’s live nativity;

let the manger shape our minds,

the baby touch our hearts,

the mother bless our flesh.

Let love be shared;

it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas,

it’s Christmas Day.

 

2. Let’s live nativity;

let the shepherds teach us truth,

the wise ones guide our path,

the singing fill our lives.

Let love be shared;

it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas,

it’s Christmas Day.

 

3. Let’s live nativity;

let the starlight lead our dance,

our giving bring new joy,

let festival begin

And love be shared;

it’s Christmas, it’s Christmas,

it’s Christmas Day.

 

Note: For other than Christmas Day, use “Christmas-time” in the chorus.
