1. The greatest story ever told—
Came to us from long ago
A Baby born in Bethlehem—
Son of God and Son of Man.
2. So very great the mystery—
And so wonderful to me!
The Word made flesh and dwelt on Earth—
The Child of the virgin birth.
CHORUS: The greatest story ever told—Came
from heaven long ago
Wrapped tightly in God’s arms of love—Baby Jesus from above.
God’s greatest gift to us bestowed—In a manger meek and low
Sweet Lamb of God to set us free— Born to die on Calvary.
