VIDEO For Unto You, Carman Christmas

A Long Time Ago in a Land Called Bethlehem
Sept 30, 2014

The swaddled baby meant ‘loved’ (see Ezekiel 16:4).
The baby in a manger/animal trough meant ‘unloved, rejected or hated’. A loved baby in a unloved position: a baby loved by Mary and Joseph, and yet shunned by King David’s entire tribe. There was no guest room set aside for them.

Carman’s 1986 Christmas Album – ‘A Long Time Ago… In a Land Called Bethlehem’ otherwise know as “Christmas with Carman”.

Now there were in the same country shepherds, living out in the fields
Keeping watch over their flock by night
And behold! An angel of the Lord stood before them
And the glory of the Lord shone around them
And they were greatly afraid
And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold!
I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.”

For unto You is born this day
In the city of David
A Mighty Savior,
Christ, the Lord.

For unto You is born this day
In the city of David
A Mighty Savior,
Christ, the Lord.

And this shall be a sign to know
A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes
Lying in the manger lo
Christ, the Lord!

For unto You is born this day
In the city of David
A Mighty Savior,
Christ, the Lord, oh

For unto You is born this day
In the city of David
A Mighty Savior!
Christ, the Lord!

And this shall be a sign to know
A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes
He will be lying in a manger lo
Christ, the Lord.

Unto, unto you!
Unto, unto you…

Spoken:
For unto us a child is born
Unto us a Son is given
And the government will be upon His shoulder
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace,
Of the increase of his government and peace
There will be no end
Upon the throne of David and over his kingdom
To order it and establish it
With judgment and justice
From that time forward and even forevermore
And the zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this!

And this shall be a sign to know
A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes
He will be lying in a manger lo
Christ, the Lord.

And this shall be a sign to know
A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes
He will be lying in a manger lo
Christ, the Lord

Unto, unto you..

For unto You is born this day
In the city of David

For unto You is born this day
In the city of David
