Verse 1: Gentle Mary laid her Child lowly in a manger; There He lay, the undefiled, to the world a stranger; such a Babe in such a place, can He be the Savior? Ask the saved of all the race who have found His favor.
Verse 2: Angels sang about His birth; wise men sought and found Him; Heaven’s star shone brightly forth, glory all around Him; Shepherds saw the wondrous sight, heard the angels singing; All the plains were lit that night, all the hills were ringing.
Verse 3: Gentle Mary laid her Child lowly in a manger; He is still the undefiled, but no more a stranger: Son of God, of humble birth, beautiful the story; Praise His Name in all the earth, hail the King of glory!
