Lyrics

1.

Once in royal David’s city

Stood a lowly cattle shed,

Where a mother laid her baby

In a manger for his bed.

Mary was that mother mild,

Jesus Christ her little Child.

2.

He came down to earth from heaven

Who is God and Lord of all,

And his shelter was a stable,

And his cradle was a stall.

With the poor and mean and lowly

Lived on earth our Savior holy.

3.

And through all his wondrous childhood

He would honor and obey,

Love and watch the lowly maiden

In whose gentle arms he lay.

Christian children all should be

Kind, obedient, good as he.

4.

For he is our childhood’s pattern,

Day by day like us he grew;

He was little, weak, and helpless,

Tears and smiles like us he knew:

And he feels for all our sadness,

And he shares in all our gladness.

5.

And our eyes at last shall see him,

Through his own redeeming love;

For that child so dear and gentle

Is our Lord in heav’n above:

And he leads his children on

To the place where he has gone.
