His father wore long hair
And torn tattered clothes
His mother a robe and a shawl
No worldly possessions
Just love for each other
That’s all

Their love was made sacred
By truth in their hearts
Their eyes spoke the words left unsaid
But people around them
Condemned them and scorned them
They fled
No shelter from the storm
And a baby to be born
Sweet Jesus;
Jesus, What would you say?
Is the world any different today?
His father wore long hair
And torn tattered clothes
His mother a robe and a shawl
