Johnny Cash - In Bethlehem lyrics

Now we are in the city of Bethlehem At the door of the Church of the Nativity where Christ was born The gate has been walled up then enters into the church because of the horsemen That used to come attack the place and sack the church It's been walled up to where there's just a very narrow opening of about Three and a half feet where you enter into the Church of Nativity So now we enter into the place where Christ was born This is the place where Christ was born to the world over it's a mighty big place Actually physically it's a small cave underneath the Church of the Nativity Many other people are here today to see this place Before me is the actual spot where Christ was born undisputed to the ages This place was found and confirmed that it was the place of the Nativity By St Helene mother of Constantine the Emperor of Rome In the third and the fourth century Just a few feet away from this place where Christ was born Where there is a Star of Bethlehem in the manger Where he was taken wrapped in swaddling clothes Meaning loose-fitting clothes laid in the manger Where he was come and visited at this very spot by the three Wisemen from the east One of the holiest of holy places In the Christian tradition the Holy Family retreated here During the ma**acre of the holy innocence ordered by King Herod And just as we left the Church of the Nativity a few minutes ago We saw another cave where so many of the children That King Herod had k**ed under two years old were buried
