Song Lyrics

It was ever so cold
She was far away from home
She was not very old
She was only a shabby little country girl
So long ago
It seemed so far away, so far away
But even so
I know your nightingale
Remembers her still
Your pussywillow and your daffodil
Even the stony old hills
Remember Bethlehem.

She was awfully weak
For the journey'd been hard
She had nowhere to sleep
She lay down in a small dark farmyard.
So long ago
It seemed so far away, so far away
But even so

I know your lowly hedgehog
Remembers her still
Your pussy willow and your daffodil
Even the stony old hills
Remember Bethlehem.

Alternate for the single version

[Hedgehog knows what it means
Fish that twitch in your greeny streams
Even your shaggy old trees
Remember Bethlehem.]

Additional verse for the single version

[When she lay herself down
She must have been afraid
There was only the ground
She had her baby in the painful darkness
So long ago it seemed so far away
But even so
I know the rain was there when her time had come
The wind won't forget what the girl has done
Even the sulky old sun
Remembers Bethlehem]

When she looked at the child
For the very first time
I suppose that she smiled
And it's my guess that Mary cried a little
So long ago
It seemed so far away, so far away
But even so
I've got the flesh and the blood
To remember them by
Him in my mind, and her in my eye
And every reason why I
Remember Bethlehem.
Bethlehem. Bethlehem.
