Once in Royal David's City

Verse 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.

Verse 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.

Verse 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 heaven above
And He leads His children on,
to the place where He is gone.
