English.png English text

I am looking for Jesus : I have to find him, but I don't know the way
You can see all my friends here they're coming with me we travel night and day.
Show me the way to Bethlehem.
I've come straight from Jerusalem,
Show me the way to Bethlehem and I am willing to pay.
You can follow the brightest illumination.
Yes you can see the star
You will find it surprising : he's in a stable with shepherds from afar.
Go now and on to Bethlehem.
Go now straight from Jerusalem.
Go now and on to Bethlehem, make sure you're willing to stay.
Follow the star with your life's heavy load.
You will find love at the end of the road.
I'm on the way to Bethlehem.
I've come straight from Jerusalem.
I'm on the way to Bethlehem and I've found hope on the way.
