Once in Royal David's City

  1. 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 meek, and lowly,
      Lived on earth our Saviour holy.​

   3. 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 feeleth for our sadness,
    And he shareth in our gladness

    4. 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.
