Teach the O Bethlehem Bible song to your children this Christmas to help them learn the main points of the Christmas story. Bethlehem was little, but God used this city to carry out His big plan.
The O Bethlehem Bible song is fresh out of the recording studio for this year’s Christmas season of 2018. I was able to debut this song just yesterday in front of a 100 preschoolers. But I didn’t just sing this song, I shared it with my newest ministry tool that I call “The Bible Story Suitcase.”
The Bible Story Suitcase is a prop that I have been dreaming about having for a couple of years. My vision for this great tool has finally come to fruition and I can’t wait to share it with all who get to see it.
It was inspired by the old traveling salesmen who would pull up into a town with his wagon and begin transforming it into a wonderful stage where he could sell his wares. I took an old suitcase that I have had for many years and asked my good friend Barney Kinard to transform it into a storytelling stage. I wanted to maintain an antique feel and I believe that we achieved my vision.
Take a look at a sample of the moves to this video:
Here are the fun lyrics to the O Bethlehem Bible song:
O Bethlehem, O Bethlehem
A little town in Judah’s land
You may be small, but you are grand
You’re where our Savior was born
Joseph took his wife Mary
To Bethlehem, a small city
Mary’s time had finally come
To give birth to her baby Son
There was no room in the inn
To the stable they did go
Mary had her baby boy
And placed Him in the manger with joy
In the fields it was night
The shepherds watched their sheep. Bah
Then low and behold an angel appeared
And said to them, “Do not fear!”
The angel said, “I bring you news
That will fill you with great joy
In Bethlehem your Savior is born
Jesus, Messiah is your Lord
The shepherds went to Bethlehem
To see the baby boy
They spread the news of His birth
Praising God for all His worth
Then Mary treasured all these things
And kept them in her heart
May all who hear be amazed
For God deserves all our praise
