Child in the manger born

lies in a cattle stall;
safely he’s sleeping,
Mary is keeping
close beside her baby so small.

2 Angels watch over him,
softly their praises sing;
voices ascending,
joy never-ending—
glory be to Jesus the King!

And God in the heavens above
looks down with a heart full of love.

3 Leaving their flocks behind,
shepherds have come to find
Jesus the Saviour,
Lord of the ages,
here within the stable tonight.

And God in the heavens above…

4 Wise men from far and wide
kneel at the baby’s side,
gazing in wonder,
praising the Son who
came to earth to lay down his life.

And God in the heavens above…

5 Child in a manger born,
I want to know you more;
know you are near me,
love you more dearly—
Jesus, my Lord.
