Verse 1: D A7 D A D Once in royal David's ci-ty Bm D/F# G A D Stood a lowly cat – tle shed, A7 D E7 A7 D Where a mother laid her ba-by Bm D G A D In a manger for His bed. G D Asus4 A D Mary was that mo – ther mild, G D G A D Jesus Christ, her lit – tle child. Verse 2: D A7 D A D He came down to earth from hea-ven, Bm D/F# G A D Who is God and Lord of all; A7 D E7 A7 D And His shelter was a sta-ble Bm D G A D And His cradle was a stall. G D Asus4 A D With the poor and meek and lowly G D G A D Lived on earth our Sav-iour holy. Verse 3: D A7 D A D And through all His wondrous child-hood Bm D/F# G A D He would honour and ob - ey, A7 D E7 A7 D Love and watch the lowly mot - her Bm D G A D In whose gentle arms He lay. G D Asus4 A D Christian children all should be G D G A D Mild, o - bedient, good as He. Verse 4: D A7 D A D For He is our childhood's patt-ern; Bm D/F# G A D Day by day like us He grew; A7 D E7 A7 D He was little, weak and help-less; Bm D G A D Tears and smiles like us He knew: G D Asus4 A D And He feeleth for our sadness, G D G A D And He shareth in our gladness. Verse 5: D A7 D A D And our eyes at last shall see Him Bm D/F# G A D Through His own re-deem-ing love; A7 D E7 A7 D For that child, so dear and gen-tle, Bm D G A D Is our Lord in hea-ven a-bove; G D Asus4 A D And He leads His child - ren on G D G A D To the place where He has gone. Verse 6: D A7 D A D Not in that poor lowly sta-ble, Bm D/F# G A D With the oxen stan-ding by, A7 D E7 A7 D We shall see Him, but in hea - ven, Bm D G A D Set at God's right hand on high; G D Asus4 A D There His children ga - ther round, G D G A D Bright like stars, with glo-ry crowned.
