Tenth Avenue North – The First Christmas Lyrics

SHARE
[Intro: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] No room in the end
No toys by the tree
No lights, no presents, no snow, no Bing

[Chorus: Mike Donehey] The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
Yeah, but we finally got what we need
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)

[Break: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] Alright
Oh come now
Alright, let me tell you a little story

[Verse 1: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] In a dirty little stable in Bethlehem
Mary and Joseph had nothing
But the light of the world came down from the heavens
The shepherds and the magi came a-runnin’ just to meet him
“Hallelujah,” the angels sing
That first Christmas

[Refrain: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] No stockings on the mantle
Parades or movies
No Santa, no cookies, no office parties

[Chorus: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
That first Christmas (that first Christmas)
But the world, we got what we need
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)

[Break: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] Saxaphone!
Come on Zach
Yeah
Come on guitars

[Refrain: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] No special cup from Starbucks
Or shopping online
But with Jesus in the manger
They were doing just fine

[Chorus: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] The first Christmas (that first Christmas)
That first Christmas (that first Christmas)
Cause we finally got what we need
The first Christmas (that first Christmas)

[Outro: Mike Donehey & Zach Williams] Yeah we finally got what we need
The first Christmas
