beagle in bethlehem lyrics – alan guno

puppy prints in the white sand
a hungry dog all alone
our little hero looks to the night sky
cuz he’s needing a home

follows a star for a dream still unknown
a family of his own

he’s a beagle in bethlehem
and he’s here to follow his star
doesn’t even know how or when
but he knows that it could be far
even when darker times have begun
destiny calls to the humblest one
so little beagle in bethlehem
don’t give up, your journey ain’t done

joseph works all day for his family
times in the city are tough
and mary sits with her only baby
but maybe three ain’t enough

one special night came a noise from outside
four paws appeared in the light

little beagle in bethlehem
i don’t know why you’re at my door
it seems that you’re lost and homeless now
but our family’s simple and poor
and though our home is small, that is true
maybe one more will help us get through
oh little beagle in bethlehem
tell me what are we gonna do

just one night
one night can comfort an orphan, a stray
just one light
can show a mother the way
home is love
miracles find a benevolent soul
just one pup
can make a family whole
this blessed family’s now whole

little beagle in bethlehem
i’m not sure what god means to do
i don’t even know why you’re here
but our family’s waiting for you
you’ll be a gift to our baby son
you will become his best friend, little one
so little beagle in bethlehem
come on in, your journey is done

he’s a beagle in bethlehem
he’s a pup who followed his star
now he’s here with his family
and their love will never be far
and on the nights when he feels alone
little jesus holds on to the pup that’s his own
so little beagle in bethlehem
sleep in peace, you’re finally home

little beagle in bethlehem
you’re finally home
