In the city of St Francis

A light shines oer the bay

Letting everybody know

That Christ is on the way

To spread his words of love and joy

To all the little girls and boys

In the city of St Francis

And all around the world

In the city of St Francis

The stars are shining bright

Letting everybody know

This is a special night

As we celebrate his birth again

In a manger down in Bethlehem

And in the city of St Francis

And all around the world

 

 

Rejoice, rejoice, Rejoice rejoice

The lord has come today

Rejoice, rejoice, Rejoice rejoice

Let shepherds lead the way

In the city of St Francis

Behold the newborn king

Our hearts are crying out with love

Our voices start to sing

For peace and joy have come our way

On this a very special day

In the city of St Francis

And all around the world
