RHAPSODY IN BLUEGRASS - SATB 58 NARRATOR: So it was in Bethlehem that Mary had her baby, just as the scriptures had promised. Joseph called His name Jesus. It wasn't in a mighty city or a golden palace that Jesus was born. She gave birth in an old barn, an old barn where animals were fed and watered. His first cradle was a manger filled with hay. Swaddling clothes and a mother's love kept Him warm that first night. The stars above were His only nightlight. God reached down and touched the earth with grace that first Christmas night and nothing has ever been the same. Yes, Bethlehem, you may be a little village, but you will always be the place where Love was born. …Bethlehem, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come from Me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. Micah 5:2 (adapted) For Preview Only
