The Decree - Art Garfunkel

Then Gabriel came

And said to Joseph alone

"Do not be afraid

To make Mary your own

But go to your betrothed

And then be married

The child is heaven-sent "

And it came to pass

That there went out a decree

From Caesar Augustus

That all the world would be taxed

And each went to be taxed

To his own city

So Joseph also went

With his lady innocent

With his lady innocent

The lions in the mountains

Let them pass and followed

Close by night to guard them

From Galilee to Bethlehem

She journeyed with only a donkey to ride

With Joseph walking beside

Came to David's city

While she was great with child

Through a country dark and wild

Through a country dark and wild

And on the far horizon

Rose a strange and brilliant

Star as though to guide them
