Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary. 

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. 

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 mean, and lowly 
Lived on earth our SAVIOR Holy. 

And through all His wondrous childhood, 
He would honor and obey, 
Love and watch the lowly maiden 
In whose gentle arms He lay. 
Christian children all must be 
Mild, obedient, good 'as He.  

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. 

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. 

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 white, shall wait around.
