Wow! What a voice! It's beautiful! Thank you for sharing this with everyone. I'm so happy that I found this song! I've been looking for it for more than a decade. I sung this song on my mission and it was a spiritual experience everytime we did it. This made me have flashbacks! Thank you again! Is this song available on Spotify? or any other place?
My absolute favorite Christmas song ever for so many reasons. I was so happy to find this video! It's beautiful and your voice is perfect. Thank you for sharing this!
You have a beautiful voice. My fellow missionaries and I would sing this song when I served in Las Vegas many years ago. Such a powerful song! You sing it beautifully, thank you for sharing your talent.
You have a really beautiful voice.
A Long Time Ago
A long time ago, a mother lay by the side of a tiny King
The wisemen would come, the shepherds kneel,
And the angels in heav'n would sing:
Hosannah! Alleluia! For unto you this night,
A babe is born upon the earth to bring the world His light.
A long time ago, a perfect man walked the shores of Galilee
He taught men of faith, to forgive, to love,
And bade them, 'Come unto me.'
Hosannah! Alleluia! How great were all His days,
For He had come to show to all the strait and narrow way.
A long time ago a mother knelt by the cross of the chosen King
The soldiers were there, men mocked His throne
And the angels wept at the scene.
Hosannah! Alleluia! How much He must have cared
For all our sins He took upon, then hung and suffered there.
And not long ago a mother knelt by the side of her child each night
She taught her to pray, to worship God, and to follow the Saviour's light.
Hosannah! Alleluia! Now when each day is through,
The love I have for Him above, I'll teach my child…to you.
This song reminds me of my parents… they love singing this song. <3 You're so beautiful, Sierra!!
So beautiful. Such amazing work Sierra!
