From the album Christmas: The Story of Stories.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Well Caesar’s wish was their command
What a long way to go
A census down in Bethlehem
What a long way to go
Goodness, gracious, have mercy
Too many miles for poor Mary
She was so far along, that had to be
Such a long way to go – oh
What a long way to go

Three Eastern Magi on a quest
What a long way to go
A star was shining way out West
What a long way to go
Goodness, gracious, man alive
I’m telling you, those kings had drive
It was two whole years ‘til they finally arrived
Such a long way to go – oh
What a long way to go

People say that love has limits
People just don’t know
How far the love that came at Christmas
Is prepared to go …

From realms of glory to bales of hay
What a long way to go
From King of Heaven to tiny babe
What a long way to go
Goodness, gracious, glory be
God came down to you and me
From a throne to a manger, to Calvary …
Such a long way to go – oh
What a long way to go – oh
What a long way to go

You’ve come, you’ve come, Emmanuel
What a long way to go
