Once in royal David's city, stood a lowly cattle  shed,
     C7 F      G7       C7 F   Dm F      Bb  C    F
where a mother laid her baby in a manger for His  bed.
Bb   F        Csus4 C   F     Bb    F          Bb  C
Mary was that mo - ther mild, Jesus Christ her little

F  C7   F       C             F      Dm   F      Bb C
He came down to earth from heaven, Who is God and Lord
of all,
     C7 F       G7    C7  F    Dm     F      Bb
And His shelter was a stable, and His cradle was
C  F
a stall;
Bb   F        Csus4 C      F       Bb      F
With the poor and meek and lowly, lived on earth our
Bb  C  F
savior holy.

F    C7     F       C             F     Dm F     Bb C
And through all His wondrous childhood, he would honor
and obey,
     C7  F      G7 C7 F          Dm       F   Bb  C
Love and watch the lowly mother, in whose gentle arms
He lay.
Bb   F        Csus4 C         F   Bb    F          Bb
Christian children all should be, mild, obedient, good
C  F
as He.

F    C7 F        C             F     Dm  F      Bb
And our eyes at last shall see Him, through his own
C         F
redeeming love.
     C7  F     G7       C7    F    Dm     F
For that child so dear and gentle, is our Lord in
Bb   C  F
heaven above;
Bb   F        Csus4 C     F   Bb     F
And He leads His children on, to the place where
Bb  C  F
he is gone.

Not in that poor lowly stable, with the oxen standing by,
We shall see Him, but in heaven, set at God's right hand on high;
When like stars His children crowned, all in while shall wait around.
