Tune: MESSY CHRISTMAS by Brenton Prigge  

(may also be sung to Santa Claus is Coming to Town - by J. Fred Coots, Henry Gillespie © 1934 )


1.  No room in the Inn, so he was born in
a stable instead, a manger his bed:
what a messy way to be born! 

2. Not much of a door, and straw on the floor
donkey dung too (I hope they wore shoes):
what a messy place to be born!

     A messy, messy business
that long ago first Christmas
It goes to show – and it's good to know -
God is with us in the mess  

3.  When... it's going all wrong and life is a mess
gotta hold on, be certain of this:
God is not afraid of our mess.

4. When we're losing our way and we get it all wrong
then this is what gives us strength to go on:
God is not afraid of our mess.  

     A messy, messy business
that long ago first Christmas
It goes to show – and it's good to know -
God is with us in the mess  

5.  The mess in our homes, the mess in our hearts,
messes we make or find as we go
God is not afraid of our mess  
God is with us here in the mess
