    "Once in Royal David's City" Lyrics

    Westminster Cathedral Choir feat. H

    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

    Jesus 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 heav'n above
    And He leads His children on
    To the place where He is gone
