  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 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 is gone.
