Chords: G, C, Am, Em, F, G7


(G)     C     Am     G   C
Once in royal David's city,
C    Am Em    G      C
Stood a lowly cattle shed,
G       C      Am      G  C
Where a mother laid her Baby,
C Am Em     G       C
In a manger for His bed:
F   C         G7     C
Mary was that mother mild,
F     C           F  G   C
Jesus Christ, her little Child.

G       C       Am         G  C
He came down to earth from heaven,
C   Am Em      G       C
Who is God and Lord of all,
G       C       Am    G  C  
And His shelter was a stable,
C   Am  Em     G     C
And His cradle was a stall:
F        C         G7        C
With the poor, and mean, and lowly,
F        C         F  G    C
Lived on earth our Saviour holy.

G           C       Am       G    C
And through all His wondrous childhood
C        Am     G   C  
He would honour and obey,
G        C         Am    G  C
Love and watch the lowly maiden,
C  Am    Em     G       C 
In whose gentle arms He lay:
F         C        G7       C
Christian children all must be
F      C        F    G  C
Mild, obedient, good as He.


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

G       C       Am         G   C
And our eyes at last shall see Him,
C       Am  Em    G       C    
Through His own redeeming love;
G        C        Am       G  C 
For that Child so dear and gentle,
C  Am  Em      G      C
Is our Lord in heaven above:
F      C         G7       C
And He leads His children on,
F      C           F  G  C
To the place where He is gone.

G      C         Am    G  C
Not in that poor lowly stable,
C    Am  Em   G        C
With the oxen standing by,
G        C        Am     G  C
We shall see Him; but in heaven,
C   Am Em          G       C
Set at God's right hand on high;
F          C         G7       C
Where like stars His children crowned
F      C           F  G  C
All in white shall wait around.
