Intro:
F C7 F  Bb C F  F C7 F

F    C7 F     C          F      Dm  F     Bb C    F
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  F
Mary was that mo - ther mild, Jesus Christ her little child.


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


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


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