Once in royal David's city

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.

And our eyes at last shall see Him,
Through His own redeeming love.
For that child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heav'n above,
And He leads his children on
To the place where He is gone.
