Once In Royal David s City chords
H. Gauntlett / C. Alexander 1849

F    G7 F     F       G7 F
Once in royal David s city,
        Dm    G7     F
stood a lowly cattle shed
G7      F      F        F
Where a mother laid her Baby,
     Dm     G7      F
in a manger for His bed
F    F        Dm     F
Mary was that mother mild,
F     F           G7     F
Jesus Christ, her little Child.

F  G7   F       F          G7 F
He came down to earth from heaven,
       Dm      G7      F
who is God and Lord of all
G7      F       F     F
And His shelter was a stable,
        Dm     G7    F
and His cradle was a stall
F        F         Dm        F
With the poor, and mean, and lowly,
F        F         G7     F
lived on earth our Savior holy.

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

F   G7 F      F           G7  F
For He is our childhood's pattern;
       Dm        G7     F
day by day, like us, He grew
G7     F       F         F
He was little, weak, and helpless,
          Dm      G7         F
tears and smiles, like us He knew
F      F          Dm     F
And He cares when we are sad,
F      F           G7     F
and he shares when we are glad.

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